Oxidative stress is an imbalance between prooxidant and antioxidant system, it is associated with upregulation of reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species, these reactive oxygen species causes radical induced inflammatory diseases and cancer. Many synthetic antioxidants are useful for curing radical induced inflammatory diseases, due to side effects of these drugs, ethanopharmacologists focus on development of plant derived antioxidants for formulation of safer and effective antioxidant drugs.
