Methods: CAT activity was assessed using chemical reactivity method. SOD and GPx activities were assessed using Cayman’s Assay Kits according to manufacturer’s instructions. Antioxidant Minerals Levels were estimated by atomic absorption spectroscopy.
Results: The results revealed that the supplementation with Alphabetic significantly (P < 0.05) increased SOD, CAT, GPx activities and also increased the blood levels of Se, Zn, Mn, and Cr compared with the non-supplement group. Conclusion: These findings suggested that supplementation with antioxidant rich supplements might reduce the risk of oxidative stress associated with DM complications.
