Antioxidant Profile



What are antioxidants?
 

Antioxidants are stable molecules that can donate electrons to free radicals, mainly

reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are toxic to cells or tissues. Some antioxidants can be

produced endogenously such as enzymes, but exogenous antioxidants have to be obtained

from diet, including vitamins, minerals, plant bioactive compounds such as carotenoids and

polyphenols.

Nowadays, supplementation of antioxidants in people who concern about their health is very

popular. However, the intake should be recommended by doctor or health specialist.

Moreover, the periodic monitoring of antioxidants in blood is e ssential and useful for

assessment of optimal levels of usage and follow-up.

Health benefits of antioxidants
 

Physiological antioxidants play an important role in the prevention of cellular damage which

can delay cell or tissue aging and may prevent some diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular

disease and neurodegenerative disease.

N Health provides the quantitative measurement of 10 antioxidan ts in serum using High

Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPL C) which is a reliable analytical technique

including high accuracy, precision, specificity and sensitivity . In order to understand the
