Bitter Cumin Provides Plenty Of Natural Antioxidants

May 20, 2011: 08:07 AM EST
Results of a study have revealed that bitter cumin is a good source of natural antioxidants. Researchers extracted bitter cumin seeds using a mix of acetone, methanol, and water, and then determined the traits of the antioxidant functions of bitter cumin extracts in different in vitro model systems, including DPPH radical, reducing power, and ABTS radical scavenging. At microgram concentration, the phenolic extracts of bitter cumin highlighted noteworthy scavenging of DPPH and ABTS radicals, showing a direct link between phenolic acid content and antioxidant activity.
