Scientists may have found a herbal remedy processed significant antioxidant activity against the onset and progression of oxidative stress-related diseases, according to studies.
Oxidative stress-related conditions are the class of diseases associated with cellular damage, including alternation of cell DNA, and damage of lipid and protein.
The list of chronic diseases caused by cell oxidation is very long, including atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, post-ischemic perfusion injury, myocardial infarction, cardiovascular diseases, chronic inflammation, stroke.
However, overexpression of free radicals also known as oxidative stress can be a danger to our health.
Scientists on finding a natural ingredient for the treatment of oxidative stress-related diseases examined the antioxidant activity of artichoke in the rat model.
Artichoke extracts showed good efficiency in the inhibition in vitro of LDL oxidation. Injection of artichoke extracts also increased the levels of antioxidant glutathione peroxidase against oxidative damage in the tested subjects compared to the control group.
