Synergism of antioxidant action of vitamins E, C and quercetin is related to formation of molecular associations in biomembranes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Vitamins E, C and polyphenols (flavonoids and non-flavonoids) are major natural antioxidants capable of preventing damage generated by oxidative stress. Here we show the capacity of these antioxidants to form non-covalent association within lipid bilayers close to the membrane/cytosol interface. Antioxidant regeneration is significantly enhanced in these complexes.
