The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of resveratrol, an active ingredient found in grapes and other plant products, in ameliorating oxidative stress. Oxidative stress was induced by addition of Fe2+ and t-butyl hydroperoxide to the cultured PC12 cell medium. Resveratrol, vitamins C and/or E, were added to the cell culture medium during oxidative stress. The combination of resveratrol and vitamins C and/or E was more effective in protecting the cell than was any of these three antioxidants alone.
