Or whether you need to be supplementing it with additional Vitamins.For the very first time there is a fully approved test that can advise you whether you are having sufficient amounts of antioxidants in order to fight Free Radicals (the cause of many illnesses degenerative diseases such as cancers, tumors, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Arthritis and others).
Individually foil wrapped. Dip the absorbent tip of test into a urine holder for 6 seconds or urinate directly onto the absorbent tip.

Depending on the results of the test you may need to think about changes to your lifestyle and diet.
Fruit and vegetables are the main source of antioxidants. A sure way to increase your antioxidant level is to ensure you eat a variety of both. Try and include types from the following antioxidant boosters.
Blueberries, Raspberries, Cranberries, Strawberries, Pomegranates, Red Grapes, Red Apples, Mango and Watermelon. Tomato, Green Peppers, Rocket and watercress, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Spinach and Broccoli. Red kidney beans (dried), Pecan Nuts, Pinto Beans. Artichokes (cooked) Plums. A simple and easy way to help keep you looking good and feeling healthy!
Antioxidants are essential to your body’s defense against free radicals. Free radicals can attack the cells of your body, affecting the cardiovascular, neurological, and immune systems. Now you can monitor free radical activity with the Fee Radical Dipstream, as you strive to strengthen your antioxidant levels.
A free radical is a molecule or element with an unpaired electron. Any molecule can become a free radical by either losing or gaining an electron. Molecules containing the uncoupled electrons are highly reactive. Once initiated, free radicals become involved in chain reactions that damage the lipid membrane of cells.
Free radicals play an important role, both in health and disease. Free radicals have been implicated in countless human disease processes. They are produced in biological systems in a number of ways.
Free radical damage may involve any cellular components and all are vital to the normal metabolic functions of the cell. The damage results in a series of damaging cellular and sub-cellular conditions. The genetic machinery of the cell can be damaged, which is a primary predisposing condition in the development of cancer. The membranes surrounding the cell’s components are essential, dynamic structures important in the transit of nutrients and excretory products involved in cellular metabolism. Anything that affects these membranes will influence the health of the cell in positive or negative ways. When destructive free radical molecules come in contact with these membranes, they can damage the membrane. Damage to the membranes can result in disruption of cellular enzymes and nutrients, and malfunction of cellular metabolism. This sequence of events is part of the degenerative disease process in a variety of disorders.
There are 3 primary reasons for increasing free radical pathology over the last 100 years:
1. Modern refined food diets.
2. The increasing amounts of synthetic substances in diets, medicine and the environment.
3. Increasing numbers of diagnosed diabetics also are found to be subject to free radical pathology.
Questions and Answer Section
Q. I am not sure I held the Free Radical Dipstream in my urine long enough. Will I get an accurate result?
A. In order to receive an accurate result you should hold the test in your urine stream for at least 6 seconds and wait as long as 5 minutes and up to 10 minutes to read the result. If you see a color change from green to a reddish-pink, in the Control Window, the test has worked properly. If you fail to observe this color change then the test is considered invalid and a new test should be run.
Q. Can the test result in the test window change after a certain length of time?
A. It is best to read the test within 5-10 minutes; a positive result will not change within 10 minutes. However, some fading will be noticed after 10 minutes from when the test is started.
Q. How will I know the test worked?
A. There must be the formation of a red or pink color, from green, in the control area. If after 5-10 minutes you do not observe this change than the test did not work properly.
While the test may be performed in any urine specimen, the first voiding of the morning will most likely contain the higher levels necessary for the most accurate results.
Medications, nutritional supplements or diets, which can produce free radicals, may produce false results. The test window should be negative (white) in the absence of any free radicals in the urine.
