During the course of your normal everyday metabolic activity, free radicals are produced.

Unfortunately, these free radicals are unstable molecules that can extract an electron from a neighboring molecule, causing damage in the process to your cells, skin, joints, organs, and other crucial body tissues.

Fortunately, these free radicals are counter-balanced by the antioxidants present in foods and supplements. Oxidative stress results when this delicate pro-oxidant/antioxidant equilibrium is disrupted in favor of the pro-oxidant (free radical) state.

Left unchecked, free radical production accelerates the pathogenesis of human disease and aging.

Evidence is mounting that oxidative stress is involved in a large number of disease processes, including:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Environmental Sensitivities
Genova Diagnostics: Oxidative Stress Analysis 2.0 is the gold-standard test for antioxidants and free radical damage.

The Oxidative Stress Analysis takes a look at your blood to determine how equipped you are to protect against these free radical ravages and which antioxidants you are or are not deficient in.

The test utilizes a small blood sample (collected in a lab near your home) in order to evaluate your body's oxidative stress status and antioxidant reserve. This nutritional test can help you or your medical practitioner assess equilibrium between oxidative damage and antioxidant reserve. It is necessary to address all three components that this test inspects:

1) The antioxidant reserve capacity that provides protection against free radicals.
2) The presence or absence of enzymes that quench those free radicals.
3) The damage that free radical production has already caused or is causing.
