This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

ANTIOXIDANTS MUST BE "CAPABLE OF BEING REGENERATED" TO BE USEFUL, Helmut Sies, MD, University of Dusseldorf, suggested at a work-shop on dietary antioxidants held by the Food and Nutrition Board's Panel on Dietary Antioxidants in Washington, D.C. Feb. 25. Defining "biological" antioxidants as compounds "serving to protect against damage inflicted by oxidants or pro-oxidants in biological tissues and fluids," Sies incorporated the requirement that the compounds be "capable of being regenerated by biological reductants."
