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.
Oxidative stress can cause serious consequences, and is thought 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. The Oxidative Stress Analysis can give valuable information about the body's level of oxidative stress, using markers to determine the degree of free radical activity in the body and the availability of antioxidants.


Who Should Have the Test?

The test is available to everyone.
It would be particularly valuable for those with any of the following conditions:
  • Alcohol induced problems
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Arthritis and other auto-immune diseases
  • Cancer
  • Contact 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, or premature retinopathy
If you answer 'yes' to 2 or more of the following questions, then you may be at risk of oxidative stress damage, and you should consider having this test:
  • Do you have allergies?
  • Do you often get colds or have sinus problems?
  • Are you under a lot of stress at work and/or at home?
  • Do your muscles or joints ache after even mild exertion?
  • Have you ever been diagnosed for chronic fatigue syndrome?

  • Are you often exposed to automobile exhaust fumes?
  • Do you smoke cigarettes or cigars or use tobacco products such as chewing tobacco?
  • Do you live or work with someone who smokes in your presence?
