INTRODUCTION Antioxidants are an inhibitor of the process of oxidation, even at relatively small concentration a nd thus have diverse physiological role in the body. Antioxidant constituents of the plant material act s radical scavengers, and helps in converting the radicals to less reactive species. A variety of fre e radical scavenging antioxidants is found in dietary sources like fruits, vegetables and tea, etc. This ABSTRACT The addition of synthetic antioxidants to oils and/or foods is… Expand
Antioxidants, its role in preventing free radicals and infectious diseases in human body
TLDR
This review generally discusses the information related to the antioxidants and their role in changing the free radicals into neutral or less reactive species and the role of antioxidant enrich sources in decreasing the risk of different human diseases. Expand

Free radical scavenging activity and lipoxygenase inhibition of Mahonia aquifolium extract and isoquinoline alkaloids
TLDR
The results indicate that although the direct radical scavenging mechanism cannot be ruled out in the lipoxygenase inhibition by Mahonia aquifolium and its constituents, other mechanisms based on specific interaction between enzyme and alkaloids could play the critical role in thelipoxygen enzyme inhibition rather than non-specific reactivity with free radicals. Expand
Antioxidant and antimicrobial activity of Foeniculum vulgare and Crithmum maritimum essential oils.
TLDR
Oils from the two samples of F. vulgare showed a higher and broader degree of inhibition than that of C. maritimum, and demonstrated antioxidant capacities, comparable in some cases to that of alpha-tocopherol and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), used as reference antioxidants. Expand
Comparison of antioxidant activity of extract from roots of licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.) to commercial antioxidants in 2% hydroquinone cream.
TLDR
The experiment revealed that oxidation degradation of hydroquinone was accelerated by heat even with the existence of antioxidants, and suggested the possibility of using a licorice extract at 0.5% and 1.0% as an effective natural antioxidant for substances that are oxidation-susceptible. Expand
