To assess equilibrium between oxidative damage and antioxidant reserve, it is necessary to address the RESERVE capacity that provides protection; the ENZYMES that quench the free radicals; and evaluate the DAMAGE that free radical production has already caused.
This test measures anti-oxidant reserve and enzyme function including: whole blood Glutathione, Total Antioxidant Capacity, and the enzymes Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione Peroxidase. Additionally, blood markers of damage measure lipid peroxides(oxidative damage to cell membranes).
