Whole food(herbal medicine), linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has placed an important role in human history over many centuries. The finding of whole food medication by renowned scientists all over world to replace the single ingredient of Western medicine with little or no side effect has been difficult due to no commercial benefit and patent right to producers.

Garbanzo bean also known as chickpea is an edible legume of genus Cicer and the family Fabaceae, high in protein and minerals. It is one of the earliest cultivated vegetables, native to Middle East.

Chickpea may be the next generation of antioxidant in scavenging against the development of free radical H2O2, malondialdehyde (MDA) through reduction of antioxidant stress.

In the study in identification and characterization of antioxidant peptides from chickpea protein hydrolysates, researchers at the joint study lead by the Avda. Padre García insisted that main sequences, ALEPDHR, TETWNPNHPEL, FVPH and SAEHGSLH, corresponded to legumin, the main seed protein, have shown to contain free radical scavenging and cellular antioxidant activities..

In support to the above study, researchers at the Jiangnan University said, " This antioxidant peptide(found in chickpea) efficiently quenched the free radical sources 1,1-diphenyl-2-pycryl-hydrazyl (DPPH), hydroxyl, and superoxide free radicals. The Cu(2+) and Fe(2+) chelating activities were 76.92% and 63.08% at the peptide concentration of 50μgmL(-1), respectively. Furthermore, the inhibition of the Fra.7 on lipid peroxidation was greater than that of α-tocopherol".

Also in the investigation of free radicals scavenging activity, pectin (CAP) extracted from the husk of Cicer arietinum L. exhibited a dose-dependent free radical scavenging activity at a scavenging rate of 29% on DPPH radicals in 1.0 mg/mL

Therefore, intake of.Chickpea accompanied with good diet can reduce risk of free radical induced certain diseases, such as cancers, arthritis, dementia, etc..
