The present study is an investigation to analyze the antioxidant nature of a specific herb Adhatoda vasica, majorly used for respiratory ailments, to neutralize tobacco smoke induced oxidative stress. The results depict that, Adhatoda vasica has a beneficial effect on the antioxidant system of the cells and prevents the toxicity caused by tobacco smoke which results in reduction in cell death.
