From: Enhancement of ATP generation capacity, antioxidant activity and immunomodulatory activities by Chinese Yang and Yin tonifying herbs

HERBS ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES REFS
Herba Epimedii water extract caused development of superoxide scavenging activity [18]
Rhizoma Drynariae water extract decreased oxidant production in rat osteoblasts water extract caused development of inhibitory effect on biomolecular oxidative damage [20] [21]
Radix Dipsaci ethanol extract enhanced blood and liver antioxidant status in rats and mice [23]
Fructus Psoraleae active ingredients (bakuchiol, isobavachin, isobavachalcone) inhibited the NADPH-dependent peroxidation of liver microsomal and mitochondrial lipids in vitro in rats [22]
Semen Cuscutae acetone/water (1:1, v/v) extract caused development of oxygen radical scavenging activity [16]
Herba Cistanche water extract caused development of superoxide scavenging activity phenylethanoids prevented cell damage induced by exposure to carbon tetrachloride in vitro and in vivo [18] [25]
Cortex Eucommiae water extract caused development of hydroxyl radical scavenging activity water extract caused development of inhibitory effect on biomolecular oxidative damage [19] [21]
Radix Morindae ethanol extract increased blood superoxide dismutase and catalase activities in diabetic rats [24]
Rhizoma Cibotii acetone/water (1:1, v/v) extract caused development of oxygen radical scavenging activity [16]
