According to the NIH (National Institutes of Health), the definition of Oxidative Stress is: …”A phenomenon caused by an imbalance between production and accumulation of oxygen reactive species (ROS) in cells and tissues and the ability of a biological system to detoxify these reactive products.” Here’s their article about Oxidative Stress and how it impacts you.
The article explains how oxidative stress is basically where there is an overabundance of Free Radicals, generated from things like inflammation, infection, cancer, excessive exercise, mental stress and aging! It can also be caused by exposure to environmental pollutants, certain drugs, chemical solvents (think cleaning products) cooking methods, cigarette smoke, alcohol and radiations.
Diseases that have been linked to Oxidative Stress are Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Neurological Diseases, Respiratory Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Kidney Disease, Delayed sexual maturation, and more.
The NIH article states: “Oxidative stress emerges when an imbalance exists between free radical formation and the capability of cells to clear them.” So, it is more important than ever to provide our bodies with sufficient antioxidants to support the body’s innate ability to find balance and overcome the insult of oxidative stress.
