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