Free Radical Test Kit

Monitor your need for Antioxidants



There are many ways to test for free radical activity in the body. These include “dry blood” or oxidative tests, serum and urine tests. The key role in these tests is essentially to determine whether there are sufficient antioxidants in the body to counteract excessive free radical activity.

Serum or blood tests are usually invasive procedures and may also be expensive. It involves analyzing blood and dried blood. These tests determine if blood from an individual is affected by free radical activity. One example is to find out if blood allowed to dry was disconnected. Please see images below :

first image is an example of healthy dried blood
second image is an example of unhealthy dried blood where excessive free radical activity has taken place


The first image shows the healthy dried blood of an individual where there is no oxidative stress and the blood is well connected. It suggests that the individual has sufficient antioxidants to counteract oxidative stress. The second image shows the sample of dried blood where excessive free radical activity has occurred to cause disconnection. There were lots of “holes” or “pores” in the dried blood.

Urine tests on the other hand measure presence of MDA, which is a product of free radical activity. It is more accurate (50x) than blood tests the results are often a lot quicker. Usually it is cheaper, non-invasive and can be done at the person’s leisure and in the comfort and privacy of his or her home.

Malondialdehyde (MDA) is a by-product of free radical activity and this is what the test kit measures.

It is recommended that you test at least once a week, if excessive free radical activity is found, until it is brought under control, or once a month or at least once every few months to make sure free radicals in the body are not running rampant!
