Because of this function, herbal antioxidants are said to play a role in the prevention and potential cure of various degenerative diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, and several others. Carotenoids are the largest group of naturally occurring antioxidants, followed closely by indoles and coumarins.

When this happens, a chain reaction is created, one that when accumulated could result in massive cell damage.
