Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Hercules star Kevin Sorbo, spokesman for Fluitec's revolutionary new TesTme Kit, will attend the Noria Reliable Plant Show in San Antonio, TX next week to explain how the same technology that is used to measure antioxidants in machines can be used to monitor oxidative stress levels in man.
Sorbo, overcame three strokes at the height of his television career, knows only too well the importance of controlling free radicals. It was a diet rich in antioxidants, along with exercise, that helped him recover. Sorbo's story is chronicled in his book True Strength.
“I fell in love with this product and am looking forward to being in San Antonio to share my story. This kit and program we are building can help those hardworking guys and gals at power plants keep not only their plants healthy and reliable but also themselves.”
"We're very excited to have Hercules, Kevin Sorbo, with us to tell a real story about both our twenty plus year history of measuring, monitoring and mitigating damage in everything from helicopters to power plants and how that is actually the same technology that we now are using with our consumer products," said Fluitec CEO Frank Magnotti.
"Kevin Sorbo is a walking billboard for what we do and why it is important. If we don't monitor the oil for oxidative stress, there's no way of knowing what is really going on or when something will happen that could be catastrophic, which is exactly the same as it is in the human body."
Fluitec's consumer business builds on the success of its patented RULER View™ technology, which provides the full picture of a fluid's antioxidant additive health, a critical part of an effective condition monitoring program. Fluitec currently has technology deployed in over fifty five countries spanning five continents.
Oxidative stress, caused by free radicals, can be brought on by a number of factors including diet, lifestyle and genetic disposition, leading to premature aging as well as a host of diseases including Alzheimer’s.The TestME™ Kit is based on the concentration of Malondialdehyde (MDA) as a proven, valid biomarker to indicate oxidative stress. TestME™ determines the amount of MDA and other aldehydes in urine. Results are expressed in the test sample’s color: the darker the color, the higher the level of free radicals. After making adjustments to either diet or lifestyle, consumers can continue to monitor their progress through the test results.
The TestME™ Kit is currently available only on line at http://www.testmekit.com. The company is beginning preproduction for educational television programs and online content for distribution beginning in later this month.
