Markers of oxidative stress were analyzed in blood samples collected before and at the end of the intervention. One of the most interesting results was an increase of almost 20% in levels of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the group that received taurine, compared with a decrease of 3.5% in the control group. As the authors explain, SOD protects cells against harmful reactions of the superoxide radical.
