  1. aThe antioxidant capacity (AC) of the extracts was obtained from the slope of the plots of latency ratios against extract in μg and presented as mean ± SD (Fig. 5b). bIC50 for the inhibitory effect on the propagation phase of LDL oxidation were obtained by non-linear fit of graphs as the one shown in Fig. 5d. As the fits are log transformed the estimates for the IC50 are presented with the 95% confidence intervals
