Aging is an inexorable process to be look forward and really deserves our attention nowadays because it somehow gives way to health atrophy or even death as we grow up. Oxidative stress is one of the primary cause of aging which is the outcome of combats done by your body antioxidants and other defensive abilities from free radicals which are byproduct of your metabolism. But FEAR NOT to this problem! It has already a solution and it was being unveiled by the Oxis International, Inc. "Advancing Oxidative Stress Technology" which is engaged in the research, development and sale of products that counteract the harmful effects of "oxidative stress".

Actually Oxis International, Inc. aims to quell both direct cellular abnormalities and damage of ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) and RNS (Reactive Nitrogen Species) which are both factors that cause oxidative stress. To treat oxidative stress, they have these OXIS' compounds that modulates the activation of transcription factors which are the body's central control switches that can bring about and revamp a cascade of interrelated events. One of this is their lead compound (BXT 51072) which is  a low molecular weight, orally active, organoselenium catalytic mimic of the major cellular protective antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase (GPx) which uses glutathione as substrate. Furthermore, it regulates secondary inflammatory processes through preventing the activation and release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, adhesion molecules and inflammatory enzymes.
