Free Radicals

Free Radicals

Free radicals test is a blood test to check the level of free radicals in your body. Free radicals are caused by oxidative stress when the bond between 2 oxygen atoms splits and the oxygen atoms are no longer in a pair. The charge in the oxygen atom becomes imbalanced leading to the oxygen atoms seeking out electrons by ripping them from the body. This damages the cells, proteins and DNA in a way that is similar to mutation by exposure to radiation. Hence free radicals are associated with human diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and many others
