Figure  8: In the biological system, ROS are formed as a natural byproduct during normal metabolism. Environmental stress elevates ROS levels dramatically. This leads to significant damage to nucleic acids and cell structures. Plant as a source of novel drug candidate for protecting DNA and cell structure from oxidative damage. Natural bioactives present in the C. tora extracts acts through several mechanisms to quench free radicals. Extracts exhibited antioxidant properties and also protected DNA and cell membrane from oxidative damage
