Journal Title:World Journal of Pharmaceutical Research
Abstract


Antioxidants have been widely used in the food industry to prolong shelf life. However, there is a widespread agreement that some synthetic antioxidants such as butyl hydroxyl anisole and butyl hydroxyl toluene (BHA and BHT, respectively) need to be replaced with natural antioxidants because of their potential health risks and toxicity. Thus, the search for antioxidants from natural resources has received much attention, and efforts have been made to identify new natural resources for active antioxidant compounds. Phenolic natural products such as flavonoids are of particular interest because of their antioxidant activity through scavenging oxygen radicals and inhibiting peroxidation. Antioxidants that scavenge free radicals play an important role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, aging, cancer, and inflammatory disorders.
