Arnica may have a profound and therapeutic effect in reducing the risk of diseases associated with overexpression oxidative stress, some scientist suggested.
The expression of oxidative stress is a medical condition characterized by the imbalance of the ratio of free radicals and antioxidant enzymes produced by the host tissue.
In some cases, this reaction also is caused long-term accumulation of toxic substances in the body, such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic.
Dr. Ercal N, the lead author in the study of the relation of toxic metals and oxidative stress, wrote, "antioxidants may play an important role in abating some hazards of heavy metals. In order to prove the importance of using antioxidants in heavy metal poisoning, pertinent biochemical mechanisms for metal-induced oxidative stress".
There is no single cause of oxidative stress. Some researchers suggested that numbers of factors can facilitate the onset of oxidative stress, including cigarette smoke, oxidative burst from activated macrophages, particularly, the free radicals chain reaction.
Sadly, a prolonged period of oxidative stress presented in the human body can cause oxidative damage to biomolecules, (lipids, proteins, DNA) and death of healthy cells through cytotoxicity.

Helenalin, chamissonolid, Sesquiterpene lactone, lignans of the furofuran, dibenzylbutyrolactone, dibenzylbutyrolactol types, pinoresinol, epipinoresinol, phillygenin, matairesinol, nortrachelogenin, and nortracheloside, six dibenzylbutyrolactol derivatives.
In the analysis of the effect of Arnica Arnica on mitochondrial oxidative stress induced by Ca(2+) plus inorganic phosphate and/or Fe(2+)-citrate-mediated lipid peroxidation through changes in oxygen consumption rates in adult male Wistar rat, researchers found that application of Arnica at dose of 6cH, 12cH, 30cH or succussed 30% ethanol (control) for 21 days, exert a strong activity in reduced expression of lipid peroxidation of mitochondrial membranes through inhibiting the antimycin-A, a toxic chemical with function in initiated production of free radicals.
Under oxidative stress conditions caused by injection of Ca(2+) and inorganic phosphate, tested group with a dose of Arnica 30cH demonstrated the effect in decreasing mitochondrial O(2), an indication of lesser expression of free radicals presented in the mitochondrion, through the herbal antioxidant activity.
In liver tissues, administration of Anise at dose 30cH in the tested group also protected the hepatic mitochondrial membrane permeabilization by inhibited ROS on the induction of lipid peroxidation and precipitated fragmentation of proteins.
The above differentiation was supported by the National Institute of Research and Development for Biological Sciences study of A. montana and A. absinthium ethanolic extracts antioxidant activity and protective effect against H2O2-induced oxidative stress in a mouse fibroblast-like NCTC cell line.
According to the final assessment, researchers suggested that both A. absinthium and A. montana extract showed a strong antioxidant capacity but lesser in A. montana, compared to A. absinthium.
At the doses of the range of 10-100 mg/L and A. montana and 10-500 mg/L A. absinthium, both extracts exhibited a significant oxygen radical absorbance capacity and 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl free radical-scavenging activity and protected fibroblast cells against hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative damage, depending on the levels of flavonoids and phenolic acids contents presented in the extracts.
According to the neutral red and lactate dehydrogenase assays, pretreatment with 10 mg/L A. montana and 10-300 mg/L A. absinthium was considered the best protection against the early onset of ROS production in H2O2-induced oxidative stress in a mouse fibroblast-like NCTC cell line.
Importantly, pre-treatment with A. montana and A. absinthium extracts also restored the proportion of cells in each phase of the cell cycle through inhibiting oxidative stress in the induction of cytotoxicity.
