Potential Source of Antioxidants : Buchanania Lanzan Spreng

Authors(2) :-Swapnil Kamble, Pratik Ravnang

The term ‘antioxidant’ referes to any molecule capabale of stabilizing or deactivating free radicals before they attack cells. Humans have evolved highly complex antioxidant systems (enzymic and nonenzymic), which work synergistically and in combination with each other to protect the cells and organ systems of the body against free radical damage. The antioxidants can be endogenous or obtained exogenously e.g., as a part of diet or as dietary supplements. Endogenous antioxidants play a crucial role in maintaining optimal cellular functions and thus systemic health and well-being. However, under conditions, which promote oxidative stress, endogenous antioxidants may not be sufficient and dietary antioxidants may be required to maintain optimal cellular functions. The most efficient enzymatic antioxidants involve glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase (Mates et al 1999).
