Oxidative stress is known to cause over 200 diseases.  If your condition is not on the above list, check pubmed.gov and see if there have been any recent studies on it.  Type in “(your condition), oxidative stress”.  If you find that oxidative stress is a feature of your condition, then Nrf2 activators can help.  Here is a system-organized list of what happens if you have low levels of glutathione (see).  Keep in mind that science has not observed, studied, nor discovered everything in the world yet, and that your condition may be helped by Nrf2 activators regardless of current scientific knowledge.  Also keep in mind that because of your individual make-up and diet, one brand of Nrf2 activator may work for your condition while another won't because of the different brand's ingredient combinations.
