Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are formed as natural by-products of normal cell activity and participate in cellular signaling. The are neutralized by the antioxidant network in the cells. If ROS production exceeds the capacity of antioxidant defense, then oxidative stress occurs.
A proper dietary antioxidant supplementation is recommended to reduce the risk of oxidative damage and its associated problems.
All animal species fed with a high-quality inactivated selenium-enriched yeast offering a superior bioavailability and/or with a dried melon juice naturally rich in the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, will be able to modulate their oxidative stress level and antioxidant desenses.
