Titolo originale: Evaluation of the in vitro antioxidant activity of Mangifera indica L. extract (Vimang) di Martínez G., Delgado R., Pérez G., Garrido G., Núñez Sellés A.J., León O.S. - Phytotherapy Research 2000 Sep;14(6):424-7.
An extract of Mangifera indica L. (Vimang) was tested in vitro for its antioxidant activity using commonly accepted assays. It showed a powerful scavenger activity of hydroxyl radicals and hypochlorous acid and acted as an iron chelator. The extract also showed a significant inhibitory effect on the peroxidation of rat-brain phospholipid and inhibited DNA damage by bleomycin or copper-phenanthroline systems.
