The Need for Oxidants Within Our Body

Oxidants Within Our Body

Inside us, there are reactive forms of oxygen concentrated in high levels that are damaging to our system. They contribute primarily for the complications of diabetic conditions and many more other diseases. On the other hand, similar studies are claiming that these high levels of reactive forms of oxygen commonly called as reactive oxygen species (ROS) molecules can at some point helpful. It can aid in maintaining health. This has surprised many physicians across the world.

A recent study about a certain protein named IRE-1 in its outer membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This part is simply called an “organelle” that produces and synthesizes some proteins including insulin. From the same study, the endoplasmic reticulum showed some fighting response to antioxidants that cause or increases the cell’s resistance to stress.

It is really surprising to see these molecules doing two different things. This news or study have paved the way for the acceptance of oxidants in our body at a certain level. They are now considered as tools that link to the “chains of cell pathways.”

The protein mentioned above which has been in the study for several times now can now also be studied for its new role in ROS pathways as well. Interestingly, research such as these kinds will certainly alter what we have already believed in.

Reactive oxygen species (or ROS) are associated primarily on diabetic complications. It is probable that these molecules are the cause of damages in protein which complicates diabetes more. It obstructs the normal gene regulatory pathways. This has been proven in some recently conducted studies.

Additional research is now conducted to check the validity of the study and therefore can be used to further the research about these matters. These types of studies are often conducted by professional physicians and other medical practitioners.
