Ox-OgenolTM : Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What are free radicals?
Answer: Free radicals play an important role in health and disease. A free radical is a molecule which contains an oxygen atom that is missing an electron. It searches for a replacement for the missing electron and accomplishes this by taking an electron from another molecule. Free radicals are highly reactive oxidative substances which may attack the DNA of healthy cells. High levels of free radical activity have been linked to disease and aging processes.
Q. Where do free radicals come from?
Answer: A wide range of free radical molecular species originate in our bodies some of which are important in maintaining health. Sources of free radicals outside of our bodies include radiation, heavy metals, toxic chemicals and air pollution. Everyone on our planet is exposed to free radicals to some degree. Emotional and physical stress can also increase free radical levels in our bodies.
Q.What causes free radical stress?
Answer: Free radical stress occurs when our levels of free radical activity become high either from internal or external sources. Free radical stress contributes to disease processes and aging.
Q. What are antioxidants?
Answer: Antioxidants are substances that neutralize free radicals. In most cases the antioxidant neutralizes the free radical by providing an electron so that the free radical can gain a neutral charge. Many antioxidants are present in fresh fruits and vegetables as well as green tea.
Q. Are all antioxidants the same?
Answer: All antioxidants are not the same. Some are more powerful free radical neutralizers than others and each kind of antioxidant has a specific effect on certain kinds of free radicals.
Q.How much antioxidant therapy do I need to take?
Answer: Your requirements for antioxidants change as a result of your life style practices. Exposure to air pollution, radiation, toxic metals, chemicals, emotional and physical stress and diet determine your level of free radical stress. A healthy diet combined with a broad spectrum of antioxidants in supplemental form combat free radical stress.
Q.How can I find out what my free radical stress level is and how much antioxidant I need to take?
Answer: A Free Radical urine test can measure your free radical levels and determine the amount of OxOgenol broad spectrum antioxidant you need to consume.
Q.What makes OxOgenol a superior antioxidant?
Answer: Oxogenol is a scientifically designed broad spectrum antioxidant blend of nutrients which have been identified as powerful free radical neutralizers.
