Oxidative Stress

When the balance of oxidants outweighs the balance of antioxidants

What it does

Oxidative stress causes inflammation in conditions such as chronic fatigue, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, psoriasis, alopecia, Crohn’s and fibromyalgia. It also accelerates ageing.

Signs and Symptoms

Oxidative stress is hard to directly measure as it affects the entire body in many different ways

Some people may experience

Tiredness, fatigue, accelerated ageing, poor immune function, continual recurring infections (colds or flu), poor memory, brain fog, muscle and joint pain, wrinkles, headaches and slow recovery times.

Antioxidants

Your body's defence against oxidants and oxidative stress

What is an antioxidant?

Antioxidants are molecules that remove oxidants from our body and keep us healthy and in balance. There are two main types of antioxidants: (i) Those from food we eat (vitamins, phytochemicals, polyphenols etc) and (ii) natural enzymes that our body makes

Low-dose (activated) daily maca can balance the nervous systems response to stressors, while high dose (atomised/extracted) maca can alleviate symptoms and offer quicker relief to chronic stubborn conditions.

These are fermented together for 3 weeks during which time the bacteria pre-digest the wholefoods so the nutrients can be instantly absorbed by the body’s cells. As the bacteria have already digested the whole-foods the body does not need to do any work to absorb all the nutrients available in the product. Check out their website for more information here. Immunity fuel can assist to bring balance back to the microbiome, reduce dysbiosis and gut inflammation.GPx Cell Protect is a potent nutraceutical formula that acts to boost your own natural production of the energy enhancing enzyme Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx) and it's co-factor glutathione.
