Oxidative stress – imbalance between free radicals containing active oxygen and uneven electrons in the body – causes a variety of health ailments by damaging the DNA and producing inflammation within the body (Sies, Berndt, & Jones, 2017). Toubanyoku combats this condition by warming up the core temperature and infusing the body with antioxidants.
