Product Details


DNA/Oxidative Stress Marker (8-OHdG) Urine

Oxidation of guanosine produces 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG.) The concentration of 8-OHdG in urine has been shown to be an accurate measure of the rate of polynucleotide oxidative damage. Elevated 8-OHdG is a sign that antioxidant nutrient intake may need to be increased.Toxicants and lifestyle stress factors may contribute to increased oxidative challenge.

Specimen Requirements:
Overnight Urine, 12ml, frozen
