The aim of this review is to highlight the main themes from studies on free radicals, antioxidants and co-factors, and to propose an evidence-based strategy for healthy aging.

Significance of Garlic and Its Constituents in Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease Garlic and Cardiovascular Disease : A Critical Review 1 , 2

This review analyzes in vitro and in vivo studies published since 1993 and concludes that although garlic appears to hold promise in reducing parameters associated with cardiovascular disease, more indepth and appropriate studies are required.

Antiglycation properties of aged garlic extract: possible role in prevention of diabetic complications.

Aged garlic extract and S-allylcysteine deserve more attention and should be investigated to see whether they can reduce AGEPs in vivo.

Brief Challenges on Medicinal Plants: An Eye-Opening Look at Ageing-Related Disorders.

A systematic overview of the relevant information in the antioxidant function of the many herbal products reviewed here for the control of the ageing process is proposed, to provide a new horizon on the design of anti-ageing herbal medicines.

Free radical theory of aging.

The free radical theory of aging postulates that aging changes are caused by free radical reactions, and data indicate that average life expectancy at birth may be increased by 5 or more years, by nutritious low caloric diets supplemented with one or more free radical reaction inhibitors.

It should be possible to resolve in the near future the question whether two days' RDA's are still adequate or whether the intake should be revised upwards and the highly interactive antioxidative system in the body strongly suggests that a well-balanced adequate intake of different antioxidants will be superior in its protective action to the supplementation with one single compound.
