Antioxidants are your body’s first line of defense. They counteract and reverse the damage done by free radicals thereby cleaning them from your bloodstream. Albeit our body produces antioxidants, it produces far more free radicals. Antioxidants help maintain the balance between the two.
Ayurveda has gifted us an array of natural antioxidant-rich herbs. The potential beneficial effects of these herbs can be procured by consuming them as dietary, nutritional and anti-aging supplements.


Clove is more than just an aromatic spice. It fights inflammation, boosts immunity and promotes healthy digestion. Its benefits are due to the natural antioxidant eugenol that reduces oxidative stress and prevents development of chronic disease.

Holy Basil

Phenolics, account for a bulk of Holy Basil's antioxidant properties. It exhibits antimicrobial, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activities. Ayurveda has been using Holy Basil for centuries, as a remedy for fever, headache, anxiety, nausea, hypertension and convulsions.

Turmeric is known for dramatically accelerating body's antioxidant capacity.
