Antioxidants

Antioxidants are an essential part of our diet and are primarily utilised to repair damage from ‘free radicals’ produced during normal metabolic activity which result in increased oxidative stress. Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, high sugar intake, exposure to toxins, etc., increase the rate of production of free radicals and require a continuous supply of nutritional antioxidants (primarily vitamins and similar compounds, and minerals).

Raised levels of oxidative stress in the long term are associated with increased risk of health problems. Biolab can measure the circulating levels of many individual antioxidants and also provides an Antioxidant Profile incorporating many of these.
