Once converted intracellularly to NAD(P)+, it is used as a co-substrate in two types of intracellular modifications, which control numerous essential signalling events (adenosine diphosphate ribosylation and deacetylation), and is a cofactor for over 400 redox enzymes, thus controlling metabolism.
Secondary metabolites that are formed of mainly phenolic groups will act as electron donors in enzymatic antioxidant systems that uses a variety of redox enzymes to catalyze the transfer of electrons to ROS (Maldonado et all., 2007; Gholizadeh, 2011).
