Antioxidants are stable molecules that inhibit oxidation.
Antioxidant enzymes either produced by the host body or from the dietary sources plays a critical role in the prevention of oxidative stress by balancing the expression of free radicals.
Free radical internally are produced during the course of cell metabolism.
Oxidative stress is caused by overexpression of free radicals compared to the low levels of antioxidant enzymes produced by the host. Over time, oxidative stress can induce proteins, lipids, and cell damage, leading to the facilitation of heart diseases, diabetes, stroke, cancer...
In other words, the chain reaction of free radical that cannot be stopped is a leading cause of oxidative stress-induced chronic disease.
Some researchers suggested the rise of oxidative stress in the US may be correlated to the promotion of the Western diet over the past few decades.
Dr. Ildiko Erdelyi wrote, "WD induces inflammatory changes, expression profiles of a broad spectrum of inflammatory proteins were performed and numbers of lamina propria macrophages were determined with semiquantitative morphometry".
And, "WD significantly alters the local colonic immune response. Collectively, these data suggest that consumption of a WD interferes with networks of related biological response pathways involving colonic lipid metabolism, oxidative stress, and the immune response".
With an aim to find a potential and natural compound for the prevention and treatment diseases associated with oxidative stress, researchers examined the effect of conventional, organic, and mixed cultivation practices on the content of total phenolics, total flavonoids and antioxidant activity in two varieties of onion grown over 4 years in a split-plot factorial systems comparison trial.
