2-HOBA (HobamineTM )

2-HOBA is a compound found in Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat that supports your DNA's defences against free radical damage. It acts as a scavenger for reactive carbonyl species that cause stress in cells.

Free radicals in our body cause stress in our cells by binding to proteins, resulting in modifications and mutations which can lead to cellular damage. 2-HOBA scavenges for these free radicals and due to its chemical structure are able to bind to them, thus preventing the chain reaction of cellular damage from occurring and promote healthy function.

Cel1 Stability
Cellular System

As you age your DNA starts to show signs of wear and tear. Your DNA is your body’s operating code, telling it how to create its cells and how they should act, so it’s important to support your DNA for optimal health.

Cel1 Stability is formulated to support healthy DNA, telomeres, and normal epigenetic processes to support your cellular health. Our hero ingredients 2-HOBA, Astragaloside and Rutin work together to support your body's natural defences against 3 of the 9 Hallmarks of Aging.


2-HOBA is unique in that it supports the cells' defences against the molecules produced due to oxidative stress and free radical damage. All without affecting healthy levels of free radicals, the cells require to function normally.

2-HOBA supports healthy aging, DNA integrity, brain function, immune, and circulatory system health.
