Antioxidant potential

Saberry® exhibits significant antioxidant activity and is “ORAC Dense”. Literature reports validate the antioxidant potential of amla in vivo. Amla extract inhibits radiation‐induced lipid peroxidation (LPO) in microsomes, and protects SOD in mitochondria.

For the LPO experiment, amla extract was added in aqueous solution. The extent of LPO was measured in terms of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances. It was observed that amla extract acts as a very good antioxidant against γ-radiation-induced LPO. Similarly, amla extract was found to inhibit the damage to antioxidant enzyme SOD in rat liver microsomes. The antioxidant activity of the amla extract was found to be both dose-and concentration-dependent. The authors concluded that amla extract being water-soluble, may scavenge the free radicals responsible for initiating lipid peroxidation.
