Antioxidant is a chemical substance that is naturally found in our food. It can prevent or reduce the oxidative stress of the physiological system. Due to the regular usage of oxygen, the body continuously produces free radicals. Excessive number of free radicals could cause cellular damage in the human body that could lead to various diseases like cancer, muscular degeneration and diabetes. The presence of antioxidants helps to counterattack the effect of these free radicals. The antioxidant can be found in abundance in plants and most of the time there are problems with the delivery. The solution is by using nanotechnology that has multitude potential for advanced medical science. Nano devices and nanoparticles have significant impact as they can interact with the subcellular level of the body with a high degree of specificity. Thus, the treatment can be in maximum efficacy with little side effect.
