Peptides are a type of molecule that are composed of two or more amino acids. They are found in all organisms and play a variety of roles in the body. Peptides with antioxidant properties have the ability to scavenge reactive oxygen species and help protect cells from oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is a condition in which cells are exposed to an imbalance of oxidizing and reducing agents. This can lead to cell damage and has been implicated in the development of many diseases. Antioxidants help to protect cells against oxidative stress by scavenging reactive oxygen species and neutralizing them before they can cause damage.
Peptides with antioxidant properties have been shown to be effective at scavenging a variety of reactive oxygen species, including superoxide, hydroxyl radical, and singlet oxygen. In addition, they have also been shown to boost the activity of other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E. Peptides
with antioxidant properties may therefore offer a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of diseases associated with oxidative stress.
