In order to explore the antioxidant capacity of pine needle extract, the scavenging capacity of free radicals in rat plasma was determined by pine needle proanthocyanidins extract, so as to preliminarily investigate the effect of pine needle extract on the antioxidant capacity of the body. 18 month old natural aging rats and 3 month old young rats were used as experimental animals. Randomly divided into blank control group, natural aging group, pine needle proanthocyanidins extract [1] gavage group. After 21 days of continuous administration, the eyeball was removed and the blood samples were collected. The contents of AOC, T-SOD and GSH were measured. By analyzing the different data of different groups, we can conclude the effect of pine needle extract on the antioxidant capacity of natural aging rats.
