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…
