Oxidative Stress – Health Supplements

Considerable scientific evidence implicates oxidative stress in the pathophysiology and many health complications of the human body. The book ‘Biochemical Ecotoxicology’ by François Gagné, Chapter 6 addresses this topic. Oxidative damage arises when the production of reactive oxygen species overwhelms the innate antioxidant defences. At high levels reactive oxygen species can cause damage to biological molecules, leading to loss of function and even cell death. Antioxidant health supplements may play an important role in maintaining cell homeostasis. A suitable CAM Practitioner can provide excellent guidance on the use of health supplements so that individual needs can me met and monitored.

Glutathione, Vitamin C, Noni Juice, Turmeric Juice are all powerful antioxidant health supplements used to help the body deal with oxidative stress. Ideally a CAM Provider can evaluate people’s health requirements and create a helpful strategy to achieve wellness goals.
