What is Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative stress refers to an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species by the ability of a biological system to easily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the damage caused.

Free Radicals are reactive or reactive compounds that are naturally produced in the human body. Molecules of molecules or molecules with one or more non-matched electrons in the outer outer electron shell of the atom.

They are very unstable and reactive. They constantly tend to break off electrons from another molecule. This is called chain reaction.

The healthy body creates its own anti-oxidant defense mechanism. If this mechanism does not function correctly, oxidative stress occurs.

Why is it important to measure oxidative stress?

Oxidative Stress is a silent enemy with no symptoms. A test is required to identify patients with high levels of free radicals and low defenses.

Oxidative Stress detection allows the development of intervention strategies that can be used to delay the progression of a disease / condition as well as to improve the results.

It allows you to slow down aging.

Increases antioxidant levels. Lowering the level of free radicals reduces the likelihood of many diseases. It also reduces the duration and severity of diseases.

For this reason, every health conscious person should regularly follow the status of oxidative stress and apply what is recommended to prevent OS.

You can improve your antioxidant level with healthy eating, exercise, lifestyle and supplements (such as Vitamin C).

What does the Oxidative Stress Test provide?

Oxidative stress detection allows for delaying the progression of a condition or disease, as well as improvement of the outcome and subsequent intervention strategies that may contribute to the improvement of life.

Stressful lifestyle and poor quality sleep


Unbalanced eating, low dose of vitamin and antioxidant use


Excess weight

Drug use (hormone therapy, etc.)

Excessive alcohol consumption

UV rays

Viruses and bacteria

What is FORT and FORD?


FORT is a colorimetric test that measures the level of hydroperoxide in the blood.

Hydroperoxides are the first indicator in the case of oxidative stress. Hydroperoxides, lipids, carbohydrates and proteins are produced when oxidative stress begins to form.

Intermediate oxidative products, hydroperosides, are an excellent indicator of free radical damage.


FORD is a colorimetric test that measures total antioxidant capacity.

Antioxidants measured by FORD: plasmatic proteins (albumin), vitamin C, Trolox (water-soluble Vitamin E), SH group (antioxidants), polyphenol compounds and bilirubin.

Why should you take an Oxidative Stress test?

Oxidative Stress is a secret enemy with no silent symptoms.

OS screening is necessary to delay the progression of any disease and improve the quality of life.

FORT and FORD tests are a reliable method to detect oxidative stress in patients, interpret the results, take future measures and protect patients from damage caused by oxidative stress.

In light of this information, Oxidative Stress can be defined as a new risk factor that threatens health, such as high blood pressure, high lipid sugar levels and obesity.

To offer a simple screening to patients who do not have much time to perform the assay.

Save time in better results and get results in a short time.

Who should perform the Oxidative Stress test?

It is useful to have an Oxidative Stress test for more than 100 diseases apart from these main diseases.

Almost 30 years olds

Hormonal disorders

Food intolerance

Cancer diagnosis

Those with diabetes

Obesity diagnosis

Heart disease

What is the benefit of oxidative stress testing?

Oxidative Stress is not a disease. It is a negative condition that causes or accelerates diseases, aging and discomfort.

Accurate balancing of ossidae and antioxidants has been proven by scientific studies that it is a necessary condition for the long-term preservation of health.

If this balance deteriorates too much, the emergence of the following diseases is accelerating:



Kalp rahatsızlıkları Heart disorders and risks



Respiratory disorders

Find out if you are fit and healthy.


You can determine the first signs of aging. You can do what you need to slow down.

You can find out if it is necessary to change your lifestyle or eating / drinking habits.

You can learn the need for reinforcement.


You can determine whether additional clinical examination is required, including disease history, general or specific blood tests.

You can prevent and reduce significant health risks.

What parameters are tested in the Oxidative Stress test?

Diabetes profile (eg Glucose and HBA1c)

Profile of cardiovascular diseases (Lipid profile and C.V. risk assessment)

Hematology profile (HB, Hct, Erythrocyte)

Toxins Aging-retardant Inflammation (Free Oxygen radicals test and Antioxidant test and uric acid)

Athlete's profile (Lactic acid, HCT, FORT and FORD)

Women's Health (FORT and FORD, HB and HCT)
