It is also becoming increasingly apparent that ingestion of a complex food may set into motion dozens of cell signaling strategies and feedback loops that are likely not to occur with a single dietary supplement [38,39]. Moreover, many compounds (particularly polyphenols) with antioxidant potential at low concentrations can catalyze redox cycling and may cause free radical generation at higher concentrations [47,48]. With that said, however, the antioxidant potential of a number of natural compounds in foods remains to be a major factor in the correlation between ingestion of fruit- and vegetable-rich diets and the a reduction in pathological events that are influenced by free radicals.

R 1O 2 OOH R H Ozone In nature, atmospheric ozone is formed from dioxygen by the action of ultraviolet light and electrical discharges. 125 ppm. The levels of concentration vary with altitude, atmospheric conditions, and locale [1–4,26]. In animals, compounds with the chemical signatures of ozone are produced as a product of innate immune reactions; more specifically, the intrinsic ability of antibodies to generate hydrogen peroxide from singlet oxygen via the so-called antibodycatalyzed water oxidation pathway [27,28].

Luteolin 7-O-glycosides are the most frequently occurring; for example, cynaroside or luteolin 7-O-glucoside is found in artichoke (Lattanzio et al. 2009) and in aqueous infusion of dried sage leaves (Zimmermann et al. 2011). 1). Quercetin and kaempferol hold prominent positions among the studied flavonols, followed by myricetin. The literature has presented at least 279 and 348 different glycosidic combinations of quercetin and kaempferol, respectively (Tsao 2010). They are found in fruits as 3-O-glycosides mainly, and more rarely as 7-O-glycosides (Belitz et al.
