QUIZ!

Check Your Oxidative Stress Risk

The goal of this quiz is to assess the different factors which taken together could lead to "Oxidative Stress." This quiz is based on scientific publications that identify factors contributing to the production of free radicals in the body. Excessive levels of free radicals trigger the onset of harmful oxidative stress.

Please note that the different criteria in this quiz are not necessarily sources of oxidative stress on their own.

This quiz is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Instructions: Read the questions and write down the number of points corresponding to each of your answers. When you have answered all the questions, add your points and check the results at the end of the quiz. 

The recommendations at the end of the quiz indicate how you could protect yourself by avoiding or reducing some oxidative stress.

What is your risk of being affected by Oxidative Stress?

Add your points and check your score below. 

1 • From 0 to 25 points

Low risk to be affected by Oxidative Stress. You have a healthy lifestyle. You might want to try Immun'Âge® after anything that can trigger Oxidative Stress, such as a tough workout, taking a flight (jet lag), stress on the job, or getting a cold. You can also take Immun’Âge® for general health maintenance and healthy aging.

2 • From 25 to 45 points

Low to medium risk of being affected by Oxidative Stress. See how you could change some aspects of your lifestyle and environment. Take Immun’Âge® as follows:

  • If you feel “fit and well," take one packet of Immun’Âge® per day for one month, and repeat three times a year.
  •  If you are tired, psychologically stressed or ill, or feel the effects of aging, take two packets of Immun’Âge® per day for two weeks, and then one packet per day for one month. Repeat three times a year if you have not changed your lifestyle. 

3 • Above 45 points 

High risk of being affected by Oxidative Stress. See how you could change some aspects of your lifestyle and environment. You could also take tests in specialized laboratories to further assess your antioxidant system and your Oxidative Stress. This would allow you to better target corrective actions and fight Oxidative Stress more efficiently. Immun'Âge® can help you fight Oxidative Stress by boosting your defense systems (anti oxidative and immune systems).

Take three packets of Immun’Âge® per day for 10 days, followed by two packets per day for two weeks, and then one packet for one month. Repeat three times a year if you have not changed your lifestyle.

 

If your score indicates that you are affected by oxidative stress, you should

 A • Analyze your lifestyle and change the unhealthy aspects of your life that trigger Oxidative Stress.
Fill out the questionnaire a second time taking into account the lifestyle changes you could make. Add the points and check if these changes would be enough to lower your score. For example, you can “save” three points by boiling or steaming instead of frying food.
B • Take Immun’Âge® following the indications stated above after each category of risks.

Please note that Immun’Âge® is a 100% natural food supplement that can be taken risk-free alongside other medication as well as vitamin A, C, E, Selenium or Omega 3 supplements. It has no contraindications. 

Immun’Âge® is a dietary supplement made solely from fermented Papaya. It is produced through a long fermentation process (8 - 10 months) under the ISO 9001 standard for production quality. This unique patented process is the only way to endow fermented papaya with the properties required to boost our natural defense systems (antioxidative and immune systems) and thus fight the gradual onset of oxidative stress effectively.
