Inhibitory effects of water extract of water spinach (WEWS) on cytotoxicity and oxidative stress induced by heavy metals were examined. Antioxidant activities of WEWS were expressed as vitamin C equivalent antioxidant capacity in 238 mg/100 g of water spinach using ABTS·− scavenging assay. Vitamin C was identified as a major bioactive component in WEWS by using UPLC/MS. The content of vitamin C was 42 mg from 100 g of dried powder. 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (a… CONTINUE READING
