Antioxidants/Vitamins Profile

Features

Through this test, the balance of antioxidant vitamins in the body can be assessed. According to the test results, it is possible to provide advices on the daily intake of an individual's diet or nutritional supplements in order to continuously maintain body health. This will further increase the capacity of a body's antioxidant, reduce harmful free radicals, prevent aging, and decrease the risks of suffering from degenerative diseases or other diseases.

Applications

People who care about regimen and anti-aging, or those with skin aging, wrinkles, aging eyesight, cancer constitution, weak heart, poor exercise tolerance, three-hypers series, and arteriosclerosis.

Oxidative Stress Profile

Features

Free radicals are cellular metabolites, which are in an unstable state and drift in cells in vivo. Moreover, it may have a chance to attack normal cells or even DNA, which causes cells to apoptosis or lose its functions. This process generates oxidative stress.

  1. DNA Oxidative Damage Marker 8-OHdG:8-OHdG is a product generated by several steps. The result of DNA attacked by free radicals in the body or deoxyguanosine in free nucleotides will act on body repair enzyme. After hydrolyzing the oxidized DNA of it, the 8-OHdG will be produced and then excretes via the urine. Therefore, it is feasible to assess the degree of body cellular DNA oxidative damage.
  2. Intracellular lipid oxidation marker MDA (malondialdehyde):After free radicals attack the phospholipids on cell membrane and cause lipid peroxidation, MDA is generated. MDA is very active in living organisms and binds to DNA and protein easily, which may destroy the development of normal cells and then cause diseases. By analyzing the conditions of intracellular lipid oxidation, the degree of body oxidation stress can be evaluated.

Applications

People with excessive stress, chronic such as allergy, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases, brain stroke, liver and kidney diseases, insomnia, memory problems, and people who care a lot about anti-aging.

Fatty Acid Profile

Features

Understanding long-term personal fatty acid intake, measuring and examining the ratio of different fatty acid including polyunsaturated fatty acids, Unsaturated and saturated fatty acids, trans fatty acid, and physical health conditions in order to assess the balance of fatty acid intake in diet and provide personal health advices.

Applications

People with allergic predisposition, chronic muscle pain, arthritis, cancer constitution such as lung cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and brain cancer, autoimmune disease, memory problems, people who dine out and consume treats, pastries, sweets and beverage regularly, and vegetarians.

Gastrointestinal Flora Profile

Features

There are more than 1200 species of bacteria, fungus, yeast, etc. in intestines in human bodies, which weigh more than 2 kilograms in total. Most of intestinal flora is beneficial to human such as balancing pH value, digesting medicine and hormones, enhancing immunity, and resolving nutrition. We provides non-invasive test for gastrointestinal flora profile analysis to evaluate GI health, capacity of nutrient absorption, change of GI health status.

Applications

People who dine out regularly or suffers from nutritional imbalance, fatigue, irritability, memory problems, stress, skin allergy, liver disorder, flatulence, stomach and intestines disorder, and inherited digestive diseases, or people who care a lot about their own health.
