  • V Macrocarpon Essay

    would provide a beneficial approach to prevent oxidative stress and the related diabetic vascular complications. Diabetes mellitus (types 1 and 2) is accompanied by increased formation of free radicals, decreased antioxidant capability leading to oxidative damage of cell components. [23] Diabetic complications associated with oxidative stress can be reduced by dietary antioxidants. Gradual increase in free radicals and diminishing antioxidant defense mechanism potential is also the fact linking diabetes mellitus with oxidative stress [29 DANDU] which occurs due to an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and intracellular antioxidants (30 Andrea et al, 2004). The oxidation process of other macromolecules, the destructive effect of free radicals in cells, the tissues or cell damage by toxic metabolites is avoided by antioxidants which can save the human body from the damaging effects caused by free radicals (Harman, 1998). They act at different levels, inhibiting the formation of ROS, scavenge free radicals and increase the antioxidants defense enzyme capabilities (31). [33 Agnieszka]. In vitro antioxidant activity of fractions of the three Vaccinium species was evaluated by DPPH radical and hydrogen peroxide scavenging, reducing power and total antioxidant capacity assay methods. As is evident from the…

  • Resveratrol

    through interaction with RAGEs. Along those lines, resveratrol mitigates the effects of AGEs via downregulation of RAGEs. While resveratrol seems to be the most popular antioxidant associated with red wine, the beneficial effects of red wine cannot be solely accounted for by this polyphenol due to its low concentration and bioavailability.127 In a recent study published in the journal PLoS One, researchers from Hungary demonstrated that malvidin, the most abundant anthocyanin polyphenol in red…
