Stress test = measuring Free Radicals  

Free Radicals

What are Free Radicals?

Free Radicals are incomplete molecules. They are unstable and dangerous to their environment, as they own a free electron, free means not bonded. Most molecules are stable because their electrons are arranged in pairs, keeping up an energetic balance. Free Radicals are very unstable and react (oxidize) with adjacent molecules by taking away an electron. The molecule loosing an electron gets usually damaged by this. In addition to that the molecule from which the electron was taken away becomes itself a Free Radical, that again might try to steal an electron from a third molecule, so that a chain reaction of damaging actions is started. Free Radicals are also called oxidants.


Where do Free Radicals come from?

When our cells use oxygen to produce energy, then as a sort of by-product a small number of mutated oxygen compounds comes into existence; among those are many which contain free radicals. Sport, stress and diseases increase in our cells the processes using oxygen and thus augment the amount of emerging Free Radicals.  Our immune system produces Free Radicals and uses them to destroy bacteria and viruses. Also inflammations as reactions to allergens and other foreign substances raise the production of Free Radicals considerably. Under these circumstances it is essential to control the flow of Free Radicals in order to protect the neighboring healthy cells. Free Radicals derive also from the environment. The increased usage of dangerous chemicals and technologies has driven up enormously the quantity of Free Radicals in our environment. For example there is ozone, a reactive product of pollution, caused by exhaust fumes . If we inhale the ozone, then Free Radicals emerge in our lungs. Further sources of Free Radicals in our environment are listed in the following table:

Sources of Free Radicals in our environment

  • Industrial chemicals and solvents
  • Food additives: preservative agents and colorants
  • Air pollution
  • Meds and drugs
  • Herbicides and pesticides in food
  • Radiation
  • Excessive sun bathing
  • Cigarette smoke

Free Radicals in the tissue lead to various damages. They damage fat compounds (especially the mono unsaturated ones), as they initiate a chain reaction which causes the fat to turn rancid and releases more Free Radicals. The activity of the Free Radicals has also the effect of merging of proteins and/or desoxinuclein acid (DNA)-molecules, whereby their functioning is impaired. In due course of time the Free Radicals create agglomerations of damaged proteins, fat cells and other residues, so that the chemical functioning of the cells is disturbed.

Vitamins are biological catalysts, which have to be supplied from outside. A catalyst is an accelerator of a reaction of the body´ s metabolism. Without biological catalysts we would evolve only one step in 100 years. There are two types of vitamins: water-soluble and lipo-soluble. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and is not synthesized by the body.
