What is 2-HOBA?

2-HOBA, or Hobamine™ is a natural molecule discovered in Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat. Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat has been used in traditional medicine for many generations, and it has only recently been discovered for use in modern supplements.

2-HOBA provides a new way to combat the effects of oxidative stress from free radicals in our cells. 2-HOBA acts as a selective reactive carbonyl scavenger. Reactive carbonyls are damaging molecules that are formed when free radicals interact with cell membranes. This interaction has a flow-on affect that leads to damage within the cells, which can accumulate with age.

Oxidative stress can be caused by many factors including

  • Natural free radical production during metabolism
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Fried foods
  • Lack of sleep
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Aging
  • UV radiation
  • A stressful work or home environment
