Oxidative Stress Analysis

What is Oxidative Stress Analysis?

The cells of the body are continuously under attack from damaging molecules known as free radicals. These free radicals are produced as a result of the various digestive and respiratory processes in the body. The damage caused is known as oxidative stress.
Anti-oxidants are nutrients that annul free radicals, thus preventing them from causing damage. The main anti-oxidants are Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Selenium. Oxidative stress can cause serious consequences, and is considered to be a contributing factor in many conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and conditions affecting immune system, liver, kidneys, lungs and nervous system.
Oxidative stress is also thought to contribute to the aging process and a number of degenerative conditions of old age.

Oxidative Stress Analysis

The Oxidative Stress Analysis can give valuable information about the body’s level of oxidative stress, utilizing a blood sample in order to evaluate the body's oxidative stress status and antioxidant reserve. This test can help practitioners identify underlying causes and perpetuating factors for many clinical disorders and to customize specific treatment programs.

Why You Need One

This test is available to everyone, particularly for those with the following conditions:
 
Alcohol induced problems
Alzheimer’s disease
Arthritis and other auto-immune diseases
Cancer
Eczema
Diabetic disease, especially cataracts
Drug toxicity
Emphysema, and other chronic lung conditions
Cardiovascular disease
Inflammatory bowel disease
Iron overload disease
Kidney disorders
Liver cirrhosis
Nutrient deficiencies
Parkinson’s disease, and other senile neurological conditions
Premature aging
 
This test reveals important clinical information about:
Antioxidant reserve. This is essential for locating of free radicals and for healthy functionof the immune, neurologic, endocrine, and detoxification systems.
Balance (or imbalance) between reduction and oxidation. This determines the level of oxidative stress, which has been associated with disease.
Tissue damage. This is evaluated early to determine the degree of imbalance and to help drive specific antioxidant therapeutic recommendations.
