Free Radical Test Kit
Monitor your need for Antioxidants !!!!!!


Osumex’s Free Radical Test is a simple, inexpensive, easy to use kit which provides result in minutes. The test can be done at the user’s leisure at home. There is no need to send away or wait anxiously for the results to be returned.

Free radicals are harmful chemicals that are produced in the body as a result of environmental pollution, radiation exposure, smoking, poor food choices, mental and physical stress. When free radicals attack the walls of the cell, oxidised by-products such as malondialdehyde are produced. Malondialdehyde (MDA) is a by-product of free radical activity and this is what the test kit measures.


The Free Radical Test kit consists of:
•test tube - container for the sample of mid-stream urine for testing
•ampoule - contains chemical compound that will measure the presence of MDA
•pipette - to transfer the urine from the test tube to the ampoule
•cotton wool - protect the ampoule from being breaking during shipment and for cleaning

This Urine test measures the presence of MDA, which is a product of free radical activity. It is more accurate (50x) than blood tests and the results are instant.

It is recommended that you test at least once a week, if excessive free radical activity is found, until it is brought under control, or once a month or at least once every few months to make sure free radicals in the body are not running rampant!




Free Radicals cause Aging

Excessive free radical activity has been shown in studies and clinical trials to cause aging.

Doctors Cranton and Frackelton dramatically underline the importance of dealing with free radicals:

When free radicals in living tissues exceed safe levels, the result is cell destruction, malignant mutation, tumour growth, damage to enzymes and inflammations, which manifest clinically as age-related, chronic degenerative diseases. Each uncontrolled free radical has the potential to multiply a million-fold. But, when functioning properly, our antioxidant systems suppress excessive free radical reactions. They point out that the life expectancy of mammals (such as ourselves) is in direct proportion to the free radical control enzymes, like superoxide dismutase.

Dr. Barja G of the Faculty of Biology, Complutense University, Madrid, Spain linked free radicals and aging as:

Aging is characterized by decrements in maximum function and accumulation of mitochondrial DNA mutations, which are best observed in organs such as the brain that contain post-mitotic cells. Oxygen radicals are increasingly considered responsible for part of these aging changes. Comparative studies of animals with different aging rates have shown that the rate of mitochondrial oxygen radical generation is directly related to the steady-state level of oxidative damage to mitochondrial DNA and is inversely correlated with maximum longevity in higher vertebrates. The degree of unsaturation of tissue fatty acids also correlates inversely with maximum longevity. These are the two known traits connecting oxidative stress with aging. Furthermore, caloric restriction, which decreases the rate of aging, proportionately decreases mitochondrial oxygen radical generation, especially at complex I. These findings are reviewed, highlighting the results obtained in the brain.


There are many more studies and researches linking excessive free radical activity in the body to diseases such as aging and cancers. The 2 observations above on their own should concern us enough to regularly check free radicals in our body to make sure they are under control. If not then the appropriate antioxidants must be used to bring such free radical activity under control.

It is recommended that you test at least once a week, if excessive free radical activity is found, until it is brought under control, or once a month or at least once every few months to make sure free radicals in the body are not running rampant!
