Abstract

The aerobic metabolism in biological systems, produces reactive oxygen species (ROS) known as prooxidants even in basal conditions. If the formation of prooxidants increases, it leads to oxidative stress/damage. Various diseases in humans (cancer, chronic diseases, cardiovascular problems etc.) accompanies with prooxidant damage. Endogenous and exogenous antioxidants protect biomolecules against the damage of prooxidants.
