In this study, the effects of MA-631, SR, LR, and
MCS on microsomal lipid peroxidation were examined
in vitro. Rat liver microsomes were incubated with
a sodium ascorbate and ADP-iron complex or with
an NADPH-generating system to stimulate nonenzymatic
or enzymatic lipid peroxidation, respectively. Aqueous
or alcoholic extracts of MA-631, SR, LR, and MCS,
when added to these incubation systems, inhibited
hepatic microsomal lipid peroxidation in a dose-dependent
manner. The alcoholic extracts were the most effective
antiperoxidants in both systems. The alcoholic extract
of MCS inhibited ascorbate- or NADPH-induced lipid
peroxidation by 56% and 63%, with 12 micrograms
and 22.5 micrograms, respectively. These findings
suggest that these Maharishi Ayurvedaa food supplements
may be useful in the treatment of free radical-induced
injury due to their antiperoxidant properties.
Please Note: Student Rasayana is now called Intelligence Plus. Ladies Rasayana is now called Rejuvenation for Ladies. MA-631 is now called Rejuvenation for Men. Maharishi Coffee Substitute is now called Raja's Cup.
