Determination of antioxidants in a drop of blood

A drop of blood is taken from the finger of the person tested. Glutathione, the main antioxidant of the body is measured by FoodOxys’ scientific staff with modern portable devices and at the same time a nutritional plan is generated based on the individual’s measurement of antioxidants, which is the innovation of the company.

Basic Gene testing package for Βio-functional Nutrition

A blood sample is taken and the main antioxidant of the body, glutathione, is measured, the oxidative damage of cellular lipids is controlled with the TBARS assay (lipid peroxidation) and Catalase, a key antioxidant gene product is measured. Then, a personalized diet plan is created based on the results of the above-mentioned measurements. Τhe measurement is repeated one month after the dietary intervention, to evaluate the benefits of the nutritional plan. 

Detailed Gene testing package for Bio-functional Nutrition

This service measures a set of biomarkers in a blood sample that are related to gene expression (and have been linked to oxidative stress, cytoprotection, anti-aging, inflammation). More precisely, this package includes:

  • Control of antioxidants – GSH (reduced glutathione), TAC (total antioxidant capacity), Reducing Power, all markers that provide important information on the body’s antioxidant defense.
  • Control of critical gene products – Catalase, GPx (glutathione peroxidase), SOD (peroxidase dismutase), GR (glutathione reductase) – enzymatic antioxidants that are involved in protecting the cell against free radicals. Their mapping provides information on the expression of antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory genes.
  • Control of oxidative damage products – TBARS (lipid peroxidation), Protein Carbonyls (oxidative protein damage)-the end products of free radical action. Their levels indicate the appearance of oxidative stress in an organism.

Based on the first measurement, a personalized nutrition plan is created for the client, and the measurement is repeated one month after the dietary intervention, to ensure the improvement of the biomarkers leading to better health and well-being, by comparing the results.
