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.


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
