Oxidative Stress 2.0 (Urine)
Evaluate Key Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress
Why use the Oxidative Stress 2.0 (Urine) Profile?
Oxidative Stress Analysis 2.0 is a nutritional test used to evaluate the body's oxidative stress status. Normal human metabolism produces highly reactive molecules known as free radicals, typically controlled by antioxidants. When production of free radicals becomes excessive, the antioxidant mechanisms of the cell become overwhelmed, resulting in oxidative damage. The Oxidative Stress 2.0 (Urine) uses a simple urine test to evaluate two key biomarkers of oxidative stress damage.
Effective for Patients Experiencing:
Since oxidative stress can affect cellular function in many body systems, it has been associated with numerous conditions including:
Chronic Pain/Inflammatory Conditions
Aging and Neurodegenerative Conditions
About the Oxidative Stress 2.0 (Urine) profile
Biomarkers of oxidative damage can be found in the urine. The Oxidative Stress Analysis 2.0 (Urine) measures these compounds:
Lipid Peroxides – reflective of oxidative damage to polyunsaturated fatty acids (components of cell membranes)
8-OHdG – reflective of oxidative damage to DNA The Oxidative Stress 2.0 Urine test results are displayed using colorimetric reporting, allowing a quick determination of patient need for antioxidant support.
