Antioxidant Check

About this test

Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our food which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our bodies caused by free radicals.

When the body's cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and can prevent and repair damage but the body needs sufficient antioxidant protection to keep these free radicals under control. Free radical damage is thought to contribute to many of the diseases and signs of ageing including wrinkes and cardiovascular disease.

Vitamins A, C and E, Selenium and Coenzyme Q10 are known for their antioxidant properties.

Who is this test for?

This blood test is for individulas who are concerned that they do not get enough antioxidants in their diet, or who believe that their lifestyle exposes them to greater free radical damage through smoking, heavy exercise, stress or sun exposure.
