Why undergoing this examination?

Oxidation is a biochemical process of electron loss associated with absorption (reduction). Oxidation is fundamental to life, as it participates in obtaining cellular energy. Oxidative stress appears when the homeostasis of intracellular oxidation-reduction is altered. This imbalance between pro-oxidants and antioxidants can be produced by excessive production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and/or deficiency in antioxidant mechanisms, leading to cellular damage to tissues and organs.

What is this exam?

• Initial OR profile.
• Basic OR profile.
• Intermediate OR profile.
• Advanced OR profile.

For whom is it indicated?

• People who wish to control the aging process.
