The Antioxidant Protection Assay (APA) identifies specific antioxidants that significantly improve your antioxidant capacity and protect your cells from oxidative damage.
It determines which specific nutrients with antioxidant properties may be beneficial to support your cells resisting oxidative stress.
Metabolism happens within cells. Cells need nutrients to protect themselves from oxidative stress.
An overload and accumulation of free radicals (from pollution, toxins, medication, radiation, etc) in the body can result in oxidative damage which plays a major role in the development of chronic and degenerative illness. Antioxidants can help protect the cells from oxidative damage.
When should an antioxidant test be considered?
Extensive scientific and clinical studies spanning 50 years have repeatedly demonstrated that micronutrient deficiencies can adversely affect health. These deficiencies can set the stage for chronic disease and compromised immune health at any stage in life, particularly if they persist.
