Scientists may have found a tiny legume which processes a potential in inhibiting the overexpression free radicals in the body, some studies suggested.
Antioxidants are molecules with a function that prevents the onset of oxidation.
Free radicals, on the other hand, are unstable molecules that cause oxidation, with unpaired electrons in the outer ring.
Oxidative stress is the indicator in which the ratio of antioxidant/free radical is altered due to the overexpression of the levels of free radicals compared to levels of antioxidant.
Some researchers suggested that oxidative stress can also be initiated by decreasing levels of antioxidant enzymes produced by the host body.
Imbalance of free radicals/antioxidants is linked to the onset of many chronic diseases, including atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, post-ischemic perfusion injury, myocardial infarction, cardiovascular diseases, chronic inflammation, stroke.
Due to the nature of free radical high reactivity, free radicals have the potential to be extremely harmful contaminants and extremely helpful for the treatment of cancers through their cytotoxic activity.
Free radicals exert their powerful reactivity through a chain reaction. Without inhibiting the unpaired electrons by antioxidants, the chain reaction cannot be stopped.
People who follow the diet rich in fruits and vegetables and less in meat and process foods have a lower risk of oxidative stress and oxidative stress-related diseases.
The National Centre for Complementary and Integrative Health in the article "Antioxidants: In-Depth" wrote, "Several decades of dietary research findings suggested that consuming greater amounts of antioxidant-rich foods might help to protect against diseases. Because of these results, there has been a lot of research on antioxidant supplements and :Observational studies on the typical eating habits, lifestyles, and health histories of large groups of people have shown that those who ate more vegetables and fruits had lower risks of several diseases, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, and cataracts".
Dried peas are the small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, the genus Pisum belonging to the family Fabaceae. It has a healthy source of protein, fibers, vitamins, and minerals that are good for everyone's diet.
In the study to evaluate the antioxidant effect of the seeds and fruit rind of six selected plants of the Fabaceae family through methanol extracts, researchers found that application of the methanol extract of the fruit rind of C. indica show the maximum DPPH free radical scavenging activity, superoxide anion radical scavenging activity
* The total antioxidant activities are also depending on the levels of total phenol content in the extracts.
* DPPH free radical scavenging activity, superoxide anion radical scavenging activity and reducing the capacity assessment.
* The antioxidant activity of all extracts also carries through the antibacterial activity in the inhibition of Gram-positive bacteria than on Gram-negative bacteria.
After taking into account co and confounders Dr. Chanda S, the lead author said, "the fruit rind of C. indica showed the best antioxidant and antibacterial activities".
Furthermore, in the study to assess the potential health benefits associated with the consumption of peas, Pisum sativum L., specifically green and yellow cotyledon dry peas by looking into the contents of the concentration and properties of starch, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals in peas, researchers showed that
* All selected legumes process a high amount of antioxidants through their polyphenols in the colored seed coat types.
* Saponins with highest levels of antioxidant contents are found to exhibit hypocholesterolemic and anticarcinogenic activity and
* Galactose oligosaccharides are associated with the beneficial prebiotic effects in the large intestine.
Taken all together, there is no doubt that dried peas process a high amount of antioxidant may be considered functional food in stimulating the production of antioxidant enzymes in reducing the risk of chronic diseases caused by oxidative stress and improving the cytotoxicity effect of free radicals against cancers without causing damage or death of healthy cells
