The aim of this study is to find new natural remedies useful for body against oxidative stress (which induces dysfunction at the cellular level, various ailments in the human body). Its have been investigated as a antioxidant potential or containing compounds with properties to capture the free radicals excess, various medicinal plants: howthorn (Crataegus oxyacantha L.), lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.) and garlic (Allium sativum L.), used for maceration in wine to obtain some oenoterapic products.

The results obtained from physicochemical analysis (UV–VIS spectrophotometry, HPLC, gas chromatography with mass spectrometry) and biochemical analysis have confirmed remarkable antioxidant potential for all studied plants, because its have a high content in compounds that can capture free radicals.The balance between oxidant action of the free radicals and the level of antioxidants it is essential for life and characterize the resistance capacity of human body, because the antioxidants neutralizing free radicals
