- Free radicals can be caused by many factors including stress, processed foods, cigarette smoking and industrial chemicals.
By determining the level of free radicals in the body, this test helps the user to assess the oxidative stress in the body and make necessary dietary/lifestyle changes to counteract any damage. This test is particularly beneficial to athletes as they risk an overproduction of free radicals during intense training.
