We know that antioxidants are important, powerful assets for our body and health, but how much do we really know about our antioxidant levels? Let’s take a look at the facts: these substances can be found in fresh fruits and vegetables, and are commonly known to help with eye health, immune system support and even skin protection. However, antioxidants protect our bodies most by counteracting a damaging molecule known as a “free radical.”
Our bodies naturally produce free radicals. Bodily functions such as energy production and immune processes release the highly unstable molecules into our system. Unfortunately, when there are too many free radicals present, our body goes into oxidative stress. In this state, the free radicals can damage necessary molecules and cells in our body—even as far as cell death. The death of cells in our body leads to the development of several different diseases.
Now we ask ourselves, what is the best preventative measure from oxidative stress is to ensure our antioxidant intake is regular and consistent? An easy way to do so in our daily life is to absorb proanthocyanidin found in blueberries, as well as bioflavonoid found in citrus fruits. Both of these antioxidants have been proven to aid in disease prevention, as well as healthy aging.
Although eating plenty of fruit may help prevent diseases, it’s not the answer to all problems. Many serious diseases are associated with oxidative stress, such as arthritis, cancer, asthma, and diabetes. The best preventative measure from your body falling victim to free radicals is to undergo an Oxidative Stress Test. This blood test will analyze your body’s current relationship between oxidative stress and antioxidant reserve, as well as provide insight into how much damage has already occurred to your cells.
After undergoing an Oxidative Stress Test, results may show that your body needs supplemental antioxidants to escape from its current state. Luckily, IV Liquid Assets is here to help you balance your antioxidant levels through our services. One of the most powerful antioxidants in our body is glutathione. This compound contains amino and glutamic acids, and it is one of the best fighters against oxidative stress. By walk-in or appointment, you can receive our Glutathione IV to guarantee your body is strong enough to counteract free radicals. We also offer many other antioxidant IVs, which could require doctor evaluation before you can schedule an appointment.
