Greenfilled's plankton ingredient protects against oxidative stress

Published: 5-Sep-2023

The Spanish brand has introduced its signature ingredient TetraSOD which is present in a line of natural supplements that utilise plankton to help with energy, memory and performance

Spanish nutraceutical brand Greenfilled has introduced its line of natural supplements that help with energy, memory, and performance. While each formula integrates various natural components, every single one has the brand's signature ingredient TetraSOD.

Greenfilled is a health and wellness brand founded by the Spain-based Marine Biotech company Fitoplancton Marino. The parent company's mission is to research, develop, and supply microalgae-based products that improve health and quality of life.

"TetraSOD is foundational to all of our formulas," said Greenfilled CEO Enrique Castaño. "It is a concentrated form of superoxide dismutase or 'SOD,' which we source from phytoplankton. SOD functions as the first essential enzyme in the antioxidant pathway. It is the first shield against oxidative stress, which makes it a powerful health and wellness tool."

We don't want to upset the oceanic ecosystem or exacerbate ongoing pollution in the pursuit of individual health

SOD is a powerful natural antioxidant. Its ability to reduce free radical damage makes it a potent agent for preserving cellular health. The enzyme's therapeutic effect leads to many positive side effects. These range from healthy, youthful skin to protecting the body against more significant concerns that can develop due to prolonged oxidative stress, such as heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, and inflammatory conditions.

While Greenfilled makes it possible to access the power of plankton for personal health, the company is also careful to ensure that its pursuit of individual improvement doesn't come at the expense of larger communities or the environment.

"We don't want to upset the oceanic ecosystem or exacerbate ongoing pollution in the pursuit of individual health," said Castaño. "We take care to ensure that Greenfilled is good for you and good for the planet."

This investment in comprehensive care for individuals, communities, and the environment can be seen throughout Greenfilled's operational activities. For example, the brand's phytoplankton is grown at a sustainable land-based farm rather than being harvested from the ocean, where marine life depends on it. Greenfilled has also recently shifted to more sustainable packaging to reduce its resource consumption.

Preserving and protecting one's health doesn't have to be dramatic. It can start with something as small as plankton. From providing easy access to life-changing nutraceutical supplements to maintaining a clean, green operation, Greenfilled is helping its customers across the globe — including the United States — tap into the powerful personal benefits of this microscopic marine alga that is already such a crucial part of life as we know it.
