OXIDANT STRESS

Free oxygen radicals are the natural products of oxygen metabolism and are necessary for the defence of the human body. They are atoms or molecules that have lost one electron and for that reason they become extremely drastic as they tend to bind other atoms or molecules (proteins, lipids, etc).

However, when the levels of free oxygen radicals exceed the natural limits, then we are talking about the oxidant stress - a phenomenon that becomes disastrous for the tissues and, consequently, for the overall health.

Oxidant stress is responsible for almost all deteriorative diseases, as well as for premature aging.

The main factors that increase the levels of free radicals and cause oxidant stress are: Psychological stress, environmental pollution (water, air and food pollution), solar (ultraviolet) rays and various kinds of electromagnetic radiation, heavy physical exercise, smoking, poor nutrition, diseases, drugs, alcohol and other toxic substances.

Oxidation created by the above factors (because of the high levels in free radicals), results in alterations on the membrane and other structural elements of the cell. Consequently, we have a series of pathological situations and diseases such as:

Cardiovascular diseases, Cancer, Rheumatic diseases, Arthritis, premature Aging, Cataract, Senile dementia, Alzheimer and Parkinson disease, Diabetes, Allergies, Asthma, Obesity, Liver diseases, Infections and Inflammations etc.

From those mentioned above, it is easily understood that there is an importance to define the level of free radicals in the average person’s organism. Thus was created the d-ROMs test (Reactive Oxygen Metabolites) consisting a simple, credible and inexpensive method that allows to define the levels of free radicals.

This knowledge is essential as it allows each person to protect their body effectively from the toxic effects of oxidant stress.

After multiple measurements, the natural and pathological levels of free oxygen radicals were defined and are expressed in Carrateli (U. Carr) units.

How are the remedy / treatment / anti-aging carried out?

By modifying nutrition and generally avoiding situations that activate oxidant stress, as well as by administering Antioxidant supplements.

The most important ANTIOXIDANTS are: vitamin C and E, carotenoids, tocotrienols, NAC aminoacids (N-acetyl-cysteine) and L-cysteine), glutathione, proanthocyanidins, alpha lipoic acid, pycnogenol, grape seed extract, fruit polyphenols, zinc, selenium etc.
