Blood Oxidative Stress Tests To Guide Lifestyle Choices

Review of Current and Future Tests for Measuring Oxidative Stress

Here is a list of the Top Oxidative Stress Tests available for evaluating your lifestyle choices.  These tests measure the level of different biomolecules that provide evidence of Oxidative Stress.  Oxidative Stress is thought to the the primary cause of multiple health problems.  Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS is thought to be the main source of Oxidative Stress in humans.  If we have any hope in managing BLOS, then we need a way to measure its level.

Oxidative Stress Tests Evaluate Breath, Urine, or Blood

In the following figure, three different samples, breath, urine, and blood, are available to measure Oxidative Stress.  For breath and blood, two tests measure Reactive Oxygen Species or ROS.  In contrast, the urine test measures the reaction end products of ROS and biomolecules.

Samples available for testing Oxidative Stress

 

Consider these Oxidative Stress Tests to evaluate whether your new diet or antioxidant supplements reduces BLOS with an improvement in your health.

F2-IsoPs/oxLDL/MPO

The F2-IsoPs blood test measures the level of F2-isoprotanes, which are an end product of Oxidative Stress.  The oxLDL blood test is the current Gold Standard of evaluating Oxidative Stress.  This test measures the oxidation of Arachidonic Acid, an end product of Oxidative Stress.  The MPO blood test evaluates the level of the enzyme, Myeloperoxidase (MPO) released by the White Blood Cells.  The TOTAL COST OF ALL 3 TESTS IS $213.

Urine Free Radical Test Strips

Blue Diamonds offer an inexpensive urine test strip that measures the Malondialdehyde or MDA, which is a byproduct of Oxidative Stress.  Use this Oxidative Stress test now to evaluate your lifestyle choices.

OxiChek

This is a breath test that is available through your physician with an estimated to cost $45.

BLOS#

This new blood test is currently in development by HemaGnosis.  The BLOS# test measures the causative agent of Oxidative Stress, the abundance of the ROS+ blood cells.  The BLOS# test has the potential to be a Disease Diagnostic, while the other three Oxidative Stress tests will only be LifeStyle Choice Tests.  Health Insurance companies do not pay for LifeStyle tests.

What is Oxidative Stress? It’s from the blood!

Blood Oxidative Stress is an Expensive Health Care Problem

What is Oxidative Stress?  Let’s review the two sources of Oxidative Stress and determine which source is more important.  General Oxidative Stress is thought to be the only source of Oxidative Stress.  However, Blood can also generate Oxidative Stress, which is also known as BLOS.  This post provides information about why BLOS is more important compared to General Oxidative Stress.  EBooks (and Books) and BLOS Health Hack Kits may help you fight BLOS for better health.

Second source of Oxidative Stress may be important to your health
Blood Oxidative Stress may be the primary source of Oxidative Stress causing multiple health problems.

General Oxidative Stress

The mechanistic model of General Oxidative Stress starts with an elevated rate of metabolism that results in mitochondrial dysfunction.  In turn, this leads to an increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).   Medical researchers observe General Oxidative Stress in tissue cultures, but it is difficult to observe in the human body.  How many biopsies are needed to identify the tissues sources of General Oxidative Stress?  Instead, medical researchers rely on diagnostic methods that evaluate ROS or oxidation end products in blood, urine, or breath.

General Oxidative Stress and ROS

ROS includes O2 (superoxide radical), OH (hydroxyl radical) and H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide).  Most folks are familiar with the many uses of hydrogen peroxide for cleaning, disinfecting, and more.  For your health, excessive production of ROS including hydrogen peroxide can be dangerous.  The ROS molecules diffuse into the bloodstream and react with biomolecules throughout the body.  The end products of these ROS reactions can be measured in blood, urine, and breath.  The general consensus on the primary cause of General Oxidative Stress is the high caloric content of the Western Diet.

Excessive alcohol consumption is a special case of General Oxidative Stress.  It causes short periods of ROS generation in the liver and other organs.  Short periods of ROS generation is a primary characteristic of General Oxidative Stress.  It is due to the reliance on excessive substrate availability necessary for the elevated rate of metabolism.  A second source of Oxidative Stress is from blood cells, which received little attention from medical researchers or the general public.

Blood Oxidative Stress

White blood cells and platelets can generate high rates of ROS, which is alarming when the patient does not have an infection.  In 2008, Walter Paulus’ research group reported on ROS+ blood cells in both healthy (non-hospitalized) and congestive heart failure (CHF) patients.  Here is the link for the Abstract of the research article describing Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18957960  This article provides interesting BLOS data and I will focus on the most important findings, which escaped the attention of the researchers.  The research community missed it, but this is understandable when you consider that there are over 200,000 research articles about Oxidative Stress.  The Paulus’ paper is the proverbial “needle in the haystack” for Oxidative Stress.

Mitochondrial ROS

BLOS was reported in two different ways (Cytoplasmic vs. Mitochondrial) in two different blood samples (Arterial vs. Venous) from two different groups (“healthy” vs. CHF patients).  The level of BLOS (or BLOS#) refers to the percent of ROS+ blood cells (i.e., generate high levels of ROS).  The most accurate measurement of BLOS# is the Mitochondrial measurement for the Arterial sample.  Consequently, the Venous samples will always be the same or slightly greater compared to the Arterial measurement.  This is due to the ROS transfer from a source (ROS+ blood cells nearby or General Oxidative Stress).

BLOS is primary source of Oxidative Stress
ROS+ blood cells generate blood oxidative stress (BLOS), the primary source of Oxidative Stress

Here is a table that brings together the most interesting data in the paper.

Comparison of % of Blood Cells with Mitochondrial Oxidative Stress for Healthy vs. CHF patients

So, What is Oxidative Stress?

Let’s start with the easier set of data for the CHF patients.  It is clear that the BLOS# for the Arterial and Venous samples are identical.  I interpret this as little contribution from General Oxidative Stress (1.5% of the Total Oxidative Stress or 1/65).  Otherwise, the BLOS# for the Venous sample would be much higher.  The Venous sample could have false positives or blood cells with high levels of ROS transferred from true ROS+ cells.  Granted, there are fewer ROS- blood cells available (36%) for ROS to enter.  However, the high level of BLOS should also generate even more ROS available in the plasma to diffuse into the ROS- blood cells.

To be complete, small vessel disease (SVD) could also increase the BLOS# for the Venous sample.  SVD would increase the time available within the capillary network for ROS to transfer from a ROS+ blood cell to a ROS- blood cells.  This does not appear to be the case for the CHF patients.  Now let’s review the data for the “healthy” people.

Non-Hospitalized Just Means Non-Hospitalized

The group of “healthy” people have a much lower BLOS# for both Arterial and Venous samples compared to the group of CHF patients.  Now, non-hospitalized doesn’t mean healthy.  Certainly, one can be unhealthy and non-hospitalized.  There is a clear difference between the Venous and Arterial BLOS# averages.  The final row in the table provides the difference between the two values.  It suggests that 30% (5/17) of the Total Oxidative Stress may be due to General Oxidative Stress or SVD or a combination of the two.  Here is my explanation for the higher estimate.

Not All BLOS is Equal

If you examine the BLOS# values for Cytoplasmic Oxidative Stress, there is a much greater difference in the healthy group.  The simplest explanation is that the rate of ROS generation from the ROS+ blood cells is much greater in the healthy group versus the CHF patients.  (There is a figure in the paper not shown here that provides this evidence)  Perhaps, the healthy group are more (metabolically) active compared to the CHF patients?  This means that General Oxidative Stress is probably much lower than 30%.  The CHF group suggests 1.5%, which is closer to 5-10% of the Total Oxidative Stress.

General Oxidative Stress Is Not Important

Another possible factor could be that General Oxidative Stress may not be active at the time of sampling.  This explanation also suggests that General Oxidative Stress is not as important compared to BLOS.  BLOS is continuous, while General Oxidative Stress is temporal (i.e., few hours).  Finally, more research and a robust diagnostic tool to measure BLOS are imperative.

CALCULATIONS

Here is more details on the BLOS# calculation.

STEP 1

In Step 1, I used Figure 5 from the publication cited to estimate the number of ROS+ blood cells for each pair of samples collected from the six volunteers.  For Volunteer A, I estimated the Venous Count (blue dashed line) at 275 and the Arterial Count (red dashed line) at 150.  I recorded the pair of values for each Volunteer in my Excel workbook.

Step 1 of 2 for calculating the contribution of both sources of Oxidative Stress

STEP 2

In Step 2, I used a conversion factor from the publication where BLOS# of 17 is equivalent to 126 ROS+ blood cells.  I applied this conversion factor (count x conversion factor) to each count and computed a BLOS# for the Venous and Arterial counts for each Volunteer (lower table).  The difference (Venous BLOS# – Arterial BLOS#) is the contribution of General Oxidative Stress to the volunteer’s Total Oxidative Stress.  Keep in mind that Small Vessel Disease (SVD) could also play a role.  SVD is probably doubtful for all of the non-hospitalized volunteers except one that reported Hypertension.

Which volunteer has Hypertension?  We will never know, but my money is on Volunteer A (the highest Venous BLOS#).

Step 2 of 2 for Calculating the Contribution of Both Sources of Oxidative Stress

Healthy vs. Non-Hospitalized

Remember that this data corresponds to the “Healthy” group, but the description of “non-hospitalized” is more accurate.  From this group, we learn that the minimum BLOS# is 5.4% (Volunteer D), which may provide guidance on a BLOS# that actually corresponds to “healthy”.  However, Volunteer D also has a GOS# (General Oxidative Stress #) of 8.8%.  Is this person healthy?

Is there a Healthy Level of BLOS?

What else can we learn from this analysis?  The range of BLOS# is 5.4%-20.2%, while the range for the GOS# is 0 (-2.0%) to 16.9%.  A comparison of the Averages of the BLOS# and GOS# suggests that BLOS is the more important source of Oxidative Stress.  It also appears that half of this group do not suffer from any significant General Oxidative Stress.

Comparison of Two Sources of Oxidative Stress

The following table provides a summary of the main characteristics of the two sources of Oxidative Stress.  General Oxidative Stress is still undefined with respect to the primary cause, tissue location, and duration.  It is doubtful that it will ever be defined.  In contrast, Blood Oxidative Stress is defined (ROS+ blood cells) and appears to be the dominant source of Oxidative Stress.  One theory proposes that diet is the origin of Blood Oxidative Stress.  Certainly, BLOS# measurements during the course of dietary studies will test this hypothesis.

Big differences in two sources of Oxidative Stress answer the question of What is Oxidative Stress.
Comparison of the two sources of Oxidative Stress used to answer the question of “What is Oxidative Stress?”

Take Home Message

The data reviewed in the Post suggests that BLOS is the primary source (90% or more) of Oxidative Stress and demands more research.  With the lowest reported BLOS level of 10%, it is unclear whether this is a healthy value.  So, the only way to study General Oxidative Stress is to have a method for managing BLOS.  Two different sources of Oxidative Stress causes confusion in medical research regarding dietary advice, fitness tips, and pharmaceutical research.  I will  post more information on these topics in the near future.

Simple Fitness Tip That Reduces Hypertension

HemaGnosis provides free fitness tip for reducing hypertension

Hypertension is one of many health problems associated with Oxidative Stress.  In the fight against Oxidative Stress, improved fitness often takes the backseat to dietary changes.  Some folks think that a regimen of low-dose aspirin will reduce their risk of heart attack or stroke.  Recent research suggests that this idea is wrong.  The idea of exercise is dreadful for most people, especially as they get older and life gets more complicated.  This post provides information on a simple fitness tip that reduces Hypertension.  Always consult with your physician before making any changes in your exercise routine and diet (read our Disclaimer below).

How Can Fitness Help Me Reduce Hypertension?

Your body generates antioxidants at low rates, which prevents the buildup of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in healthy people.  For many unhealthy people suffering from Oxidative Stress, the high concentration of ROS in the blood depresses your plasma sulfide concentration, which “tightens” your blood vessels.  Dietary changes that reduce BLOS may help reverse this problem.  In the meantime, there is another approach for improving your circulatory system performance: Fitness.

Here’s the key point regarding fitness:  Short periods of effective exercise will generate nitric oxide (NO), which relaxes blood vessels and reduces hypertension.

So, routine effective exercise will help you in your fight against hypertension.  The keyword here is “effective.”  Although you could join a health club and train for a marathon or a body-building competition, that isn’t necessary.  Instead, invest in a good pair of walking shoes, heart rate monitor, and some comfortable clothes for walking.  The key is to use the heart rate monitor to ensure that you elevate your heart rate for a minimum of 15 minutes.  That means that you will sweat, so consider going for your walk before or after work.  If your boss does not mind a sweaty employee, then squeeze in a walk over lunch.

Try A Brisk Walk a Few Times Per Week

Daily effective exercise is ideal, but you should start with a modest goal of 2-3 times per week.  Always consult with your physician on a good target heart rate for your age, gender, and current fitness.  A relaxing stroll around the neighborhood won’t work.  You will burn calories with a relaxing stroll, but you will not be effective in reducing hypertension.

Share this post with your family and friends and maybe you’ll find a walking buddy.  Search the internet and you will find websites like this one that will find you a walking buddy.

Walking can be Effective Exercise for reducing Hypertension

Great Products Are The Key To This Fitness Tip That Reduces Hypertension

I provided a list of products that will help you in your fight against Hypertension with links in my BLOS World Store to purchase through Amazon.

Walking shoes.  Invest in a good pair of walking shoes for indoors and outdoors.  New Balance and Reebok make great shoes that are comfortable and durable.

Top 3 Antioxidant Supplements to Lower Oxidative Stress

Which Antioxidant Supplements Work The Best For Blood Oxidative Stress?

A review of the current medical research suggests that three Antioxidant Supplements may reduce Oxidative Stress for improved health.

Oxidative Stress

The two reported sources of Oxidative Stress are General and Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS.  General Oxidative Stress is the more familiar due to its earlier discovery.  However, BLOS is probably the primary cause of Oxidative Stress.  General Oxidative Stress results from short periods of elevated metabolism rates within cells that generates reactive oxygen species (ROS).  In contrast, BLOS is a large fraction of your blood cells induced to generate high levels of ROS.  Long term, elevated BLOS is the probable cause of multiple health problems.  More than 2/3 of adult Americans suffer from BLOS.  Both sources of Oxidative Stress result in high levels of ROS that diffuse throughout the body causing damage and health problems.  Although your body does produce low levels of antioxidant, excessive ROS may require an antioxidant supplement to manage Oxidative Stress.

Antioxidant supplements could manage BLOS
Where does BLOS come from? The Western Diet!

Goal of Antioxidant Supplements

There are two ways to reduce the harmful effects of BLOS.  You need to either reduce the amount of food that promotes BLOS or consume foods and supplements rich in antioxidants.  Since BLOS is continuous, a time-release supplement with an effective antioxidant would be ideal.

3 Great Antioxidant Supplements

Based on the current medical research literature, I’ve provided a list of the three best antioxidant supplements for reducing Oxidative Stress.  I’ve included links in my BLOS World Store to purchase these items through Amazon.

Vitamin E

The most recent research that evaluated a broad spectrum of antioxidants concluded that Vitamin E was the most effective in reducing oxidative stress.  Although a time-released supplement of Vitamin E does not exist (yet), adding this supplement provided by Puritan’s Pride may help you in your fight against Oxidative Stress.   Here’s a high quality supplement loaded with Vitamin E.

Time-released Antioxidant

As I mentioned previously, a time-released supplement with one or more antioxidants may be the key to reducing the effects of BLOS.  I found a pair of time-released supplements offered by Puritan’s Pride loaded with different antioxidants including Vitamin E.  A combination of this time-released supplement and additional Vitamin E may be good strategy for reducing Oxidative Stress.  Here’s the link for men and one for women.

MitoQ

Another new research study suggests that MitoQ, a modified Coenzyme Q molecule enabling it to “stick” to the mitochondria for eventual transfer inside the mitochondria for antioxidant activity.  In this study, MitoQ was the best antioxidant supplement for reducing oxidative stress.  They observed improvement in blood flow for lower hypertension.  While Vitamin E will be effective in neutralizing ROS in the blood, the addition of MitoQ could also be beneficial in neutralizing any ROS generated within the mitochondria and any ROS diffusing from the blood into adjacent cells.  Here’s a link for a high quality MitoQ product.  Supplements with effective antioxidants may be the key to reducing the effects of elevated BLOS.

Avoid These 5 Foods That Cause Blood Oxidative Stress

Which foods cause blood oxidative stress or BLOS?

Here is a list of the Top 5 Foods to avoid, if you want to reduce Oxidative Stress and improve your health.  Avoiding ultra-processed foods may reduce your risk of cancer, but are they all bad for you?  Many ultra-processed foods have one thing in common: high levels of inorganic sulfur.  This type of sulfur leads to the growth of sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) in your gut, which may cause your blood cells to generate high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS), the primary source of Oxidative Stress.  In the long term, high levels of ROS can damage DNA, which can cause cancer.

Western Diet has many foods rich in sulfur that cause BLOS
Where does BLOS come from? The Western Diet! Low BLOS Foods may be the key to managing BLOS.

Low BLOS Foods

Consider reducing or eliminating these foods from your diet to reduce Oxidative Stress and improve your health.  Always consult with your physician before making any dietary changes (read our Disclaimer at the bottom).

Commercial Baked Goods

Most breads and pastries for sale at your local supermarket use one or more types of sulfur compounds to improve the shelf life and quality.  Most Flat Breads and Wraps have lots of these additives.  Check the ingredient label for these additives.

Vegetables High in Sulfur

Here’s your excuse for not eating Broccoli, Cabbage, and Brussels Sprouts.  These vegetables contain high levels of sulfur, which may cause Oxidative Stress!  The good news is that there are plenty of other vegetables that do not have the high levels of sulfur.

Dried Fruit

Most dried fruits contain high levels of sulfur dioxide as a preservative and should be avoided.  Instead, purchase fresh fruit and dry your own!  Better yet, enjoy fresh fruits like blueberries, which are a rich source of antioxidants to help you in your fight against Oxidative Stress.  Use this link to purchase dried blueberries through Amazon:  http://hemagnosis.com/blog/wp/product/dried-blueberries/

Excessive Meat

Too much meat in your diet could also contribute to BLOS, since it is an excellent source of organic sulfur.  The breakdown of the sulfur containing amino acids could lead to sulfur available to the SRB in your gut.  It is best to reduce your meat consumption to reduce Oxidative Stress.

Home Baked Goods

Not all of your tasty cakes, pies, and breads should be avoided.  Instead, check your favorite recipes for your breads and pastries and be sure to use aluminum-free baking powder, which does not contain inorganic sulfur.  Use this link to purchase this baking powder through Amazon:  http://hemagnosis.com/blog/wp/product/rumford-baking-powder-8-1-oz/

Foods rich in sulfur may cause Oxidative Stress.
Fresh Vegetables that have low levels of Sulfur are your best protection against BLOS. Low BLOS Foods are the key to managing Oxidative Stress.

BLOS World Has Best Information to Reduce Oxidative Stress!

BLOS World provides a review of the best information and products to reduce Oxidative Stress.  Why should you worry about Oxidative Stress?  Start with learning more about Oxidative Stress generated by your blood.

What is Blood Oxidative Stress?

Blood Oxidative Stress (BLOS) is probably the primary cause of Oxidative Stress.  In BLOS, activated blood cells generate high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS).  However, reducing the amount of inorganic sulfur in the diet and adding effective antioxidant supplements may manage BLOS.  About 2/3 adult Americans are thought to suffer from elevated BLOS.  BLOS extends beyond the USA with Europe and countries that adopted the Western Diet.  The effective management of BLOS may be the key to treating several health problems including Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, and the risk of Cancer.  In the USA, BLOS is thought to be responsible for annual healthcare costs of more than $800B.
