Oxydative stress profile

Free radicals induced by pollution, imbalanced food, tobacco use, sun, excess of sport or a stressful life may damage DNA. On a longer term, inflammation and cancer may occur. Monitoring the equilibrium between those free radicals and the immune system capabilities to neutralize them is therefore paramount.

For assessing and monitoring oxydative stress, Biopredix offers:

  • An annual check-up « Oxydative stress profile » whose content is detailed hereafter (tests list, recommended sample nature and prescription form).
