The science of REDOX homeostasis and the benefit to the body are just beginning to become known to high-performance athletes and the general public.
REDOX refers to chemical reactions known as REDuction and OXidation reactions. Exercise is known to increase … Read the rest
Oxygen is essential to contemporary life, providing the major electron sink underlying cellular energy metabolism. In addition to providing energy, largely involving redox reactions within mitochondria, oxidative metabolism produces reactive byproducts that are … Read the rest
Novel prize winner James Watson, discoverer of the DNA double helix, in Oxidants, antioxidants and the current incurability of metastatic cancers proposed commonly consumed free-radical-destroying antioxidative nutritional supplements may have caused more cancers than they have prevented. This view is … Read the rest
Reduction oxidation (REDOX) reactions are central to life and when altered, they can promote disease progression. It is now clear that some ROS, such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), can act as messengers both in the extracellular … Read the rest
