The human body is an incredibly complex biomechanical machine that thrives on balance for optimal function. When you have high oxidative stress levels, the free radicals in your system have the upper hand. To restore balance and order, we offer Nutrigenomics by LifeVantage®.
At Island Lotus Health & Wellness, our team emphasizes great health inside and out. While we offer a host of aesthetic services that help you, quite literally, put your best face forward, we also believe in tackling your health and wellness on a cellular (and even molecular) level. To that end, we offer Nutrigenomics, which are supplements that biohack your body, leading to reduced levels of oxidative stress.
Read on to explore how we may be able to reduce your oxidative stress by up to 40% through biohacking.
The scoop on oxidative stress
Oxidative stress is a condition caused by an imbalance between the free radical and antioxidant levels in your body, which can lead to a host of systemic problems, including cardiovascular issues and diabetes.
While free radicals have a bit of a bad reputation, the fact is that these molecules do perform some essential functions, like fighting off pathogens in your body. However, free radicals have an uneven number of electrons, which can initiate chemical processes in your body called oxidation.
Under normal circumstances, your body also contains enough antioxidants to balance out the number of free radicals, allowing them to perform their job of fighting off disease and infection without interfering with healthier functions. To do this, antioxidants release electrons into the free radicals, giving them an even (and more stable) number.
But when you don't have enough antioxidants in your body to donate electrons to your free radicals, these molecules can wreak havoc through oxidative stress.
Biohacking your way to great health
As the term implies, biohacking is an approach that hacks into your body's systems to provide them with the tools they need for healthy function. For example, Nutrigenomic products support your body's natural cellular process by up-regulating your genes' ability to produce their antioxidants.
At the heart of the biohacking is Protandim®, which contains milk thistle, bacopa extract, ashwagandha, green tea extract, and turmeric extract. These all-natural ingredients have been shown to reduce oxidative stress in humans by 40% in 30 days.
The goal behind biohacking is to awaken your body's ability to rejuvenate itself on a large scale, staying one step ahead of the aging process. And by reducing your oxidative stress, you benefit with great health and overall wellness.
