Catalase is a key ingredient in many grey hair reversing pills. But did you know it’s also a powerful antioxidant that’s good for you?
Catalase Longevity Effects Reported in New Research Study
We pride ourselves on producing a grey hair pill that not only reverses the greying hair process, but restores the appearance of youth and vitality. Now independent research has championed a key ingredient in our pill – Catalase. Citing it as one of the biggest breakthroughs in the fight against aging.
According to Richard G. Cutler of Kronos Science Laboratories in Phoenix, Arizona, the enzyme Catalase – a key ingredient in the Grey Defence® dietary supplement – is one of the most promising leads in the anti-aging research industry. As previously mentioned in many of our blog entries, Catalase is an enzyme that’s particularly adept at breaking down one of the main reasons why your hair goes grey: an excessive amount of hydrogen peroxide within the body.
The Catalase enzyme is so critical to our health that it is found in nearly every living organism on the planet that is exposed to oxygen. This antioxidant enzyme can catalyze the conversion of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide is a by-product of cell metabolism.
Catalase has one of the highest rates of turnover when compared to all other enzymes. In other words, one Catalase enzyme can change 40 million molecules of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen in just one second. In fact, Catalase enzymes act to protect our cells, counteracting and balancing the continual production of hydrogen peroxide.
Because of its undeniable, scientifically-proven powerful antioxidant properties, Catalase is very beneficial to the organs and body processes. In addition to acting as an super antioxidant, Catalase also has the ability to use hydrogen peroxide to oxidize toxins including methanol, ethanol, formic acid, formaldehyde, and nitrite. This type of dual activity makes it a crucial cellular enzyme.

Many have asked about the safety of Catalase enzymes. Well the best way to provide proof of safety is to direct your attention to the FDA GRAS Inventory. This is the listing of ingredients that the FDA considers generally recognized as safe. GRAS ingredients are such that no upper limits on daily consumption are defined since their toxicity potential are so low.
By working together with Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Glutathione Peroxidase, Catalase helps to neutralizes free radicals and excess hydrogen peroxide. Breaking down hydrogen peroxide and transforming it into its harmless original elements – water and oxygen – makes Catalase one of the most crucial enzymes in the fight against greying hair…
And, as it turns out, the fight against aging as well!
“It was very exciting to learn that the increase in expression of mitochondrial Catalase genes…was associated with an increase in both oxidative stress resistance and lifespan,” Cutler points out in his research publication, “Oxidative Stress and Aging: Catalase is a Longevity Determinant Enzyme.”
So why does oxidative stress contribute to faster aging? And why has research been unable to acknowledge the vital role Catalase plays in the fight against degenerative aging processes?
Cutler supplies us with an answer: “Although the potential importance of oxidative stress as a causative factor in the aging process was suggested in 1956, it was not until 1972 that it was proposed that endogenous protective mechanisms such as antioxidants and DNA repair, acting against oxidative stress, were responsible for controlling the aging rates and life spans of different species.”
Cutler ends his paper with very exciting findings: “[Using catalase] increased both median and maximal lifespan by about 17-21%.”
The findings are critical to the support of research institutions that prioritize the study of enzyme therapy in the battle against degenerative diseases. Additionally, such findings only support our view that using enzyme therapy, among other nutrients, is vital not only for grey hair reversal, but for restoring youth and vitality altogether.
The bottom line is this: if you want to reverse those greys while restoring your own youth, vitality and appearance – not to mention increase your lifespan – there’s no denying that our grey hair supplement Grey Defence® is at the forefront of revolutionary anti-aging research.
