Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in the body, leading to cell and tissue damage. Markers of oxidative stress are crucial for studying the aging process, as oxidative damage is a major contributor to cellular aging and functional decline. Monitoring these markers can help in evaluating the efficacy of antioxidant therapies and lifestyle changes that aim to reduce oxidative damage.
