The uncontrolled production of free radicals which causes the various diseases such as rheumatoid arthiritis, cirrhosis, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, aging etc. Antioxidants have been reported to prevent the oxidative damages through radical scavenging and chelating metal ions. Some synthetic drugs are available but it causes the various side effects in human body. Some natural products have antioxidative materials in their extracts and it prevents the oxidative damages.
