Epidemiological studies show a positive correlation between oxidative stress and chronic disease development such as heart disease and cancer. While several antioxidant compounds with varying physical and chemical characteristics are able to reduce oxidative stress in biological systems, relatively few studies have been performed to examine the structural characteristics that produce potent antioxidants. We examined 20 essential and non-essential amino acids using the ORAC assay and used a… CONTINUE READING
