With modern medicine, we now understand how cellular health is foundational for overall health and well-being. Every organ, tissue, and system rely on the proper functioning of individual cells. One of the crucial factors that can disrupt this delicate balance is known as oxidative stress. This phenomenon, often considered a double-edged sword, plays a pivotal role in the body’s cellular health. Several processes such as cell signaling, immune system defenses including phagocytosis, apoptosis and drug metabolism all rely on the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), however, as we’ll see in this blog, ROS are potentially damaging and the oxidative stress that they can induce can be highly detrimental. This dual nature underscores the complexity of oxidative stress and its pivotal role in health and disease.
