Sources of Natural Antioxidants and Their Activities

  • Denys J. Charles


The oxidative damage to cellular components has been found to be responsible for a number of chronic diseases including cancer. It has been shown beyond any doubt that these damaging events are caused by free radicals. Antioxidants are the defense system in vivo and there are several lines of defense. Polyphenolic compounds are the other important radical scavenging antioxidants. There are several sources of natural antioxidants such as herbs and spices. However, there are other natural products such as cereals, nuts, oilseeds, legumes, vegetables, animal products, and microbial products which can serve as rich sources of natural antioxidants. The richest sources of polyphenols are various spices and dried herbs, cocoa products, some darkly colored berries, some seeds (flaxseed) and nuts (chestnut, hazelnut, walnut), and some vegetables, including olive and globe artichoke heads. This chapter describes the antioxidant properties of these sources in great detail.
