Abstract

Reactive species (RS) which are generated from the pollution, deep fried and spicy foods, leakage of electrons from mitochondrial electron transport chains etc. may result in an oxidative damage in the body. The oxidative damage may lead to various diseases such as Alzheimer, atherosclerosis and cancer. In order to prevent such diseases, antioxidants play important roles in reducing the powerful oxidizing agents. Vatica species that belongs to the family of Dipterocarpaceae has been widely known to contain abundant source of oligostilbenoids which demonstrated interesting result in biological activities such as anticancer and antioxidant. This may lead to a development of drugs as well as natural antioxidants. In this chapter, we are highlighting the oligostilbenoids isolated from Vatica species from various researcher as well as the biological activities.
