Oxidative Stress Nutritional Test

Oxidative Stress Analysis is a nutritional test used to assess your bodies oxidative stress level. The typical human metabolism produces highly reactive molecules known as free radicals, controlled by antioxidants. Production of free radicals can become excessive, antioxidant mechanisms of the cell then become overwhelmed, resulting in oxidative damage. The Oxidative Stress analysis uses an easy urine test to evaluate two naturally occurring biomarkers of oxidative stress damage. Biomarkers are naturally occurring molecules, genes, or characteristics by which a particular pathological or physiological process, disease, etc. can be identified.

Evidence is accumulating that oxidative stress is involved in many pathological processes, including:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Atherosclerosis

  • Macular degeneration

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

  • Environmental sensitivity

  • Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s

  • Alzheimer’s

The Oxidative Stress test results are displayed using an instant colour stick, allowing a quick determination of patient’s Oxidative stress result, therefore allowing a quick and easy treatment. The advantage of this test is the measurement of Oxidative stress Biomarkers in urine is a patient-friendly non-invasive approach to evaluating levels of damage being produced by free radicals. Assessing the Oxidative stress damage can indicate your need for dietary and/or lifestyle modifications and provide guidelines for antioxidant supplementation that suits you, which can help minimise future Oxidative damage.

Dietary antioxidants (found in blueberries and citrus fruits), as well as antioxidant enzymes, provide critical protection against free radical damage which is what causes Oxidative stress. This stress is involved in many pathological processes including the ones mentioned above, meaning this test is essential for identifying the Oxidative stress level and manage these levels.
