What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress is caused by an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and a biological system’s ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or easily repair the resulting damage.
All forms of life maintain a reducing environment within their cells. This reducing environment is preserved by enzymes that maintain the reduced state through a constant input of metabolic energy. Disturbances in this normal redox state can cause toxic effects through the production of peroxides and free radicals that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids, and DNA.
What is the relationship between oxidative stress and asthma
More and more evidence show that asthma is intimately linked to the generation of oxidative stress. While the oxidative stress could be the consequence of oxygen radical production by some white blood cells, such as macrophages, neutrophils, and eosinophils, it is important to understand that oxidative stress could also be an inciting factor in the generation of airway inflammation. Thus, exposure to diesel exhaust particles, ozone, environmental tobacco smoke, and subpollen particles could generate reactive oxygen species that contribute to the development of asthma.
How can you do to reduce the harm from oxidative stress
You cannot control what are in the environment. You also have the hard time to control what is going on inside of your body when these white blood cells to release these inflammatory factors. You can, however, to remove these inhaled or internally generated inflammatory factors by performing an effective nasal cleansing.
Nasal irrigation with NasalCare
Nasal irrigation with NasalCare System is easy, safe, and there is no drug interaction. If you hate asthma flaring up and cannot control inside and outside of your environment, you can perform daily nasal cleansing by yourself. Your goal is to reduce the frequency of your asthma flaring up.
