Hobamine (2-HOBA) has entered the spotlight as a new ingredient to help improve the balance of cellular health according to an article in Nutrition Insight.
Hobamine is a patented ingredient from TSI Group that is a naturally occurring compound of hydroxybenzylamine (2-HOBA). This ingredient is a breakthrough because it specifically targets the negative impact from oxidative stress without blunting the body’s normal and healthy processes.
Health at a Granular Level
Cellular health is the foundation of overall health and becomes especially more important as we age.
“Cellular health matters because it has an important impact on how well the body functions, repairs itself, produces new body tissue and much more,” says principal investigator John A. Rathmacher, Ph.D.
We are made up of trillions of cells and those cells are the building blocks of the body. Cell from tissues, tissues form organs, and organs form the systems that make up our bodies. Everything that happens in our bodies starts on a cellular level. In other words – the healthier our cells, the healthier our body will be.
More Than an Antioxidant
Hobamine is notably not an antioxidant because it allows our bodies to continue their normal processes like cell signaling and immune function while minimizing the adverse effects of oxidative stress.
Whereas, antioxidants avoid the development of oxidative stress all together, but then this blocks our bodies from its normal physiological functions and pathways.
“Hobamine could easily become the next new vitamin C or vitamin D in terms of consumer acceptance,” comments VP of business development at TSI Group Shawn Baier. “It is a defender of every cell in the body.”
