BLOS is blood cells that generate high amounts of reactive oxygen species (ROS). These ROS are the primary molecule responsible for Oxidative Stress. Oxidative Stress is thought to be the major cause of sperm dysfunction, but many medical researchers wrongly assume that the sperm cell is the source of Oxidative Stress. BLOS is present throughout the body where ever blood flows with ROS permeating tissue and organs wreaking havoc. Sperm are impacted by the ROS produced by BLOS just like all other parts of the body.
The Ketogenic Diet offers a unique approach to losing weight that focuses reducing carbohydrates and increasing fat consumption. Switching to this extreme diet has its pros and cons. How do I know if my body switched to ketosis? If elevated blood oxidative stress (BLOS) caused my weight gain, then how do I know whether my Ketogenic diet also lowers Oxidative Stress? Urine tests improve Ketogenic Diet by answering these critical questions.
Diabetes Prevention Programs continue to grow in popularity in the United States. These Programs feature weekly meetings with trained lifestyle coaches that help participants evaluate and change lifestyle choices with an emphasis on weight loss. Avoiding the progression from Prediabetes to Type 2 Diabetes reduces health care costs, which is about $17,000 per year! An estimated 84 Million Americans have Prediabetes and 9 out of 10 do not know it! Structured lifestyle changes reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes by half, but why don’t they work all the time? Can we improve a Diabetes Prevention Program?
Is there a way to improve the best diets to lower Oxidative Stress? There is scientific evidence that a change in diet could help you lose weight and lower Oxidative Stress. Do we need to invest in our own personal medical research laboratory in order to evaluate the impact of our dietary choices on Oxidative Stress? There is a simple, inexpensive way to evaluate any diet. First, let’s look at a list of the top 7 diets in the marketplace and then I will show you a way to improve them.
The Right To Try Bill is a new Law, which offers hope for terminally ill patients interested in trying experimental drugs that passed Phase 1 safety standards from the FDA. While encouraging, the grim reality of experimental drugs is that a large majority fail in Phase 2/3 of Clinical Trials. This is despite Pre-Clinical experiments providing evidence that these experimental drugs work in animal models. Could variable levels of Oxidative Stress in humans cause some of this failure? If true, then there may be a simple way to improve the odds of an experimental drug working for Right To Try patients. This approach should also interest Big Pharma. An Oxidative Stress Test provides feedback on lifestyle choices for lowering Oxidative Stress. This approach should be used prior to using experimental drugs for better results.
Elevated Blood Oxidative Stress May Impact Clinical Trials
The primary source of Oxidative Stress in adult Americans is from blood cells, which we call Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS. Although about 2/3 of adult Americans are thought to suffer from elevated levels of BLOS, medical researchers do NOT control it during Clinical Trials. Control in this context means minimizing BLOS during the clinical trial. But Big Pharma has been doing this for decades and this is the right approach for evaluating experimental drugs, right?
Probiotics are found in supplements and food items with the promise of a health benefit. However, the FDA has yet to approve any probiotic for the treatment of any human disease. While animal studies provide evidence that probiotics may be an effective treatment for health problems, human studies always come up short. There may be a simple explanation for this observation: Oxidative Stress. Learn how to enhance probiotics for women and men by reducing and managing Oxidative Stress.

Can Vitamin C reduce Oxidative Stress? Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, which means that it reacts with reactive oxygen species (ROS) to neutralize it. There are reports of Vitamin C being an ineffective antioxidant supplement. However, a mismatch of the supplement format compared to the source of Oxidative Stress may be the cause. Supplements come in three main formats, which provide the release of the compounds immediate, time, or sustained release.
The immediaterelease is usually a tablet format or chewable. This format provides a near instantaneous increase in the concentration of the compound in the blood. This assumes implied losses due to stomach digestion and absorption prior to entry into the blood stream.
With time-release, the format prevents rapid capsule digestion in the stomach with release in the small intestine. Time-release is not immediate, but it does avoid losses due to stomach digestion. Both immediate and time-release formats provide a short-term spike in compound concentration in the bloodstream.
With sustained-release, the capsule releases the compounds over several hours, which will provide a steady, low concentration of the compound(s) in the blood stream. Which supplement format is the best for antioxidant effectiveness?
