The second day of CPhI India 2017 was its inaugural day at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre in Goregaon. One of the highlights was a presentation by Dr B K Iyer, medical advisor, Astareal. The topic was Choosing the right antioxidant: A deeper perspective.

He said, “Physicians have different points of view on antioxidants, and a possible reason for this is ambiguity. Choosing an effective anti-oxidant is important, and there are ten characteristics that need to be kept in mind while doing so.”

“An effective antioxidant effectively enters the proper slot; is (preferably) soluble in water and in the lipid medium, and maintain structural integrity and functional stability of the cell,” Dr Iyer said.

“It should be easily absorbed and more potent; possess no proactive property; provide additional bonus effects; should be issue-specific, provide bonus effects to exert positive or negative effects on genes, and have the capability to repair and supplement the internal or primary enzymatic,” he added.

Thus, an ideal antioxidant or combination is one that strives to achieve the work.
