EVALUATION OF ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITIES OF SOME NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTSAbstract
The nutritional supplements are the natural food supplements, and other related products used to boost the nutritional content of the diet. These nutritional supplements have been of interest to research because of their antioxidant property by consumption of food and drinks. The present study deals with a comparative evaluation of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of marketed nutritional supplements using cytoprotection, lipidperoxdiation and membrane stabilization activities on RBC under in-vitro condition. The marketed nutritional supplements exhibited cytoprotection or prevented hemolysis in erythrocytes and provided better protection against H2O2 induced oxidation and lipid peroxidation and exhibited good membrane stabilization when compared to standard. The Women Horlicks showed significant protection against H2O2 induced cytotoxicity in erythrocytes when compared to other supplements, the nutritional supplement Boost provided better protection against lipidperoxidation induced by H2O2 in erythrocytes. The nutritional supplement Maltova showed better membrane stabilization activity when compared to standard and other nutritional supplement.
