|Title:||Influence of dietary ginger (Zingiber officinales Rosc) on antioxidant defense system in rat: Comparison with ascorbic acid|
|Authors:||Ahmed, Rafat S.|

|Abstract:||Ginger (Z. officinale; 1% w/w) significantly lowered lipid peroxidation by maintaining the activities of the antioxidant enzymes—superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase in rats. The blood glutathione content was significantly increased in ginger fed rats. Similar effects were also observed after natural antioxidant ascorbic acid (100mg/kg, body wt) treatment. The results indicate that ginger is comparatively as effective as ascorbic acid as an antioxidant.|
