Scavenging of reactive oxygen species by the plant phenols genistein and oleuropein.

Abstract

The plant-derived phenolic compounds genistein and oleuropein are known to exhibit several biological properties, many of which may result from their antioxidant and free radical scavenger activity. In this paper we report the results of a complex study of antioxidant activity of genistein and oleuropein, using electron spin resonance (ESR… (More)
