Date:11/20/2008

RIVERSIDE, Calif., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Milk. It does a body good. And now it's doing it even better than originally thought. After years of research, scientists at OncoNutrition(TM) have discovered peptides found in cow's milk that stimulate the body's own production of antioxidants.

While developing new cancer therapies, the chief scientist, Dr. David Tsai, discovered that these peptides, once unlocked from their larger host protein, stimulate the production of the antioxidant enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD). When SOD was first discovered in 1968, it was dubbed 'the enzyme of life,' because it's the first antioxidant mobilized by the cell for defense. Cancer sufferers, especially those undergoing chemotherapy, often have high levels of free radicals, which deplete the body of antioxidants. As a result, vital organs can be overburdened and injured due to chemotherapy treatment. With AminoAct(TM), now available through OncoNutrition(TM), chemotherapy patients have access to a functional nutritional supplement that boosts their antioxidant levels and aids recovery from the damages of chemotherapy.

Cancer Treatment Review recently published a clinical review of 19 different studies indicating that antioxidant supplements taken by cancer patients resulted in increased survival time and increased treatment response. Antioxidants mainly come from two sources, either from nutrients like Vitamin C, or through antioxidant enzymes produced by the body. "AminoAct(TM) stimulates the body to produce its own antioxidants. Because our product works from the inside out, users benefit from a dramatic increase in their antioxidant levels," stated Olof Mollstedt, OncoNutrition's CEO.

"Our studies show that AminoAct(TM) i
