Many researchers have reviewed the involvement of free radicals in the development of life style diseases like diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, cataract, ageing, neurodegenerative diseases etc. Antioxidant plays an important role in preventing these degenerative diseases by scavenging free radicals. Antioxidant from exogenous sources are necessary to have as endogenous antioxidant defenses like superoxide dismutases, metal binding protein, H2O2 removing enzymes are inadequate to… Expand


Antioxidants and Disease Prevention
The present review highlights the health benefits of antioxidants with supporting evidence from animal studies and human studies and suggests several foods which have good antioxidants potential. Expand
The sources of natural antioxidants
Intensive oxidative processes occuring in human organism lead to formation of oxygen reactive forms, which can damage systemic cells and tissues. It is shown, that body endogenous protective systemExpand
Plant polyphenols as dietary antioxidants in human health and disease
It is suggested that long term consumption of diets rich in plant polyphenols offer protection against development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases. Expand
Antioxidants in health and disease.
The prevailing opinion is that additional supplements of antioxidants are not needed, as long as the organism has adequate stores of antioxidants and the diet is normal in composition and in quantity. Expand
Flavonoids as anti-inflammatory agents: implications in cancer and cardiovascular disease
This review summarizes the known mechanisms involved in the anti-inflammatory activity of flavonoids and the implications of these effects on the protection against cancer and cardiovascular disease. Expand

The data show duality of physical activity actions: regular moderate activity protects against ROS/RNS damage, and endurance exercise with a lack of training mediates oxidative stress, indicating that the redox balance should be considered in the development of new antioxidant strategies linked to the prevention and therapy of skin diseases.
