Free radical testing capabilities provide me with valuable data for correlating highly reactive free radical activity with specific disease processes. I can then determine appropriate, specific antioxidants and nutritional protocols needed to counteract free radical damage and those disease processes.

WHAT IS IT?
The Oxidata Test is the world's first and only non-invasive urine test that measures the amount of free radicals or oxidants in the body within five minutes.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Everyone has, by now, heard of free radicals and the importance of antioxidants in the diet. This test enables the user to measure the amount of oxidative stress the body is enduring and the results of antioxidant intervention.
Many, if not all diseases, afflict the body through oxidative damage. The free radical theory of aging says that it is the primary cause of aging itself.
Free radicals are simply unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be electrically neutral. When they are not they quickly look for something to latch on to thereby creating a new molecule. This is how many chemical reactions take place. Without these oxidation-reduction reactions, not only would life not take place, but many of the other important functions of the body wouldn't either. For example, white blood cells often kill their bacterial or viral enemies with free radicals.
Free radicals are like fire. Properly confined they are beneficial to the body and, fortunately, the body has means to confine them. These are called antioxidants, and they look for excess free radical activity and neutralize it. It is only when free radicals become unconfined and excessive and start attacking normal, healthy tissue that disease takes place. This happens when antioxidant activity is inadequate, hence the importance of maintaining proper antioxidant activity in the body.
This test measures the amount of a free radical called malondialdehyde (MDA) in the urine. It is a measure of the overall antioxidant capacity of the body. This test is 40 to 50 times more reliable than a MDA blood test. Accuracy is within the range of 90%.
The test is conducted by comparing the color change in a urine sample with a chart.
Rather than guessing if an antioxidant program is working or whether it is working too well, this test provides a scientific measurement of results.
The test is best taken as a before and after snapshot of the effectiveness of antioxidant intervention through supplementation or dietary and exercise changes.
Not for injection or ingestion. Do not inhale. Vial contains substances which are irritating. The intense dye will cause stains. Add test urine to the ampoule. DO NOT ADD AMPOULE CONTENT TO TEST URINE. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of accidental ingestion, or if the contents of the vial get in your eyes, CALL PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY.
Use the test at least once a week if the initial test shows high oxidative stress then reduce to once or twice a month after antioxidant supplementation has reduced it to a normal level.
Place urine in cup and draw up one milliliter with the dropper. Break top off of ampoule and squeeze urine from dropper into ampoule. Wait five minutes; then hold ampoule up to evaluation chart to match colors. Record your reading on card.
Supplemental Dietary Restrictions Prior To Using Your Oxidata testTM:
The day before you use the test, do not take supplemental vitamins, such as vitamin C, vitamin B complex, or vitamin B-1 (thiamine), vitamin B-2 (riboflavin), vitamin B-3 (niacin, also known as pyridoxamine). Any oral intake of vitamins or medication that turns your urine to an excessively yellow color (Riboflavin) may interfere with your ability to interpret the reading of your value. If you are currently taking any medications consult with your physician about the results of this test.
