Abstract:
The aim of this study was to determine the anti-oxidative stress capacity of Cinnamomum zeylanicum (CZ) when administered in a controlled manner to radiology unit staff which are exposed to persistent low-dose radiation. A group of 27 radiology unit staff were invited to drink CZ (0.5 g powder mixed with 300 mL boiled water) twice daily for 2 weeks. Blood samples before and after entering the study was measured for lipid peroxidation level (LPO), total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and total thiol molecules (TTM). The results indicated a significant increase in plasma TAC (p = 0.0001) and TTM (p = 0.05) and a significant reduction in plasma LPO (p = 0.044). CZ has marked antioxidant potency and can alleviate complications of illnesses related to oxidative stress in radiology unit staff. CZ is recommended to be used as a dietary supplement for radiation protection.
