Oxidative damage is caused by free radicals, highly unstable molecules formed through human physiological processes (such as converting food into energy) and the environment (such as pollution or smoking). Oxidative damage contributes to cell damage and plays a role in many chronic conditions including atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
Life Healthcare Group offers comprehensive free radical testing in order to identify the level of damage to your cells and reduce free radicals in your body in a safe manner. Our free radical testing includes:
- Initial and follow-up physician consultation for a detailed assessment, diagnosis, and development of your personalised treatment plan
- Urine and blood testing for three measures (cell membranes, DNA, and RNA) of free radical damage
- Urine and blood testing for protective antioxidant factors (vitamins C, E, Carotenoids, CoQ10, flavonoids, polyphenols)
