Scientists from the University of Granada and the Virgen de las Nieves Hospital have found out that some critical patients could improve their oxide stress and, consequently, their clinical situation by taking a simple exogenous antioxidant treatment through food. This study has proved that the oxide stress increase during patients stays in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), due to the low levels of antioxidant food consumption.
The oxide stress is caused by the imbalance between the reactive oxygen substances production and the organism defence mechanisms which acts rapidly in the detoxification of these substances or repairs the damage. The oxide stress is involved in many diseases like atherosclerosis, Parkinson, Alzheimer, and it is also significant in the aging process.
