It has been reported that there is an inverse relationship between the dietary intake of antioxidant-rich food and medicinal plants and incidence of human diseases. A number of scientific studies are addressing the varied health benefits of antioxidant supplementation in processes like stress, ageing, pathogen infestation, reduce cell damaging effects, apoptosis and neurological diseases of free radicals.
