Description: 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.
