Additional Information: Cancer and ulcers is multi- step mediated multi- mechanistic complex, devastating diseases. Oxidative stress induced reactive oxygen species and are responsible for the ignition of the caner and ulcers. Although cancer cells are initiated due to exposure to carcinogens, clinical manifestations at that level is negligible. However, due to several adaptational mechanisms of cancer cells and down regulation of immunoprotective function; the physiological condition aggravates; the disease is manifested clearly leading to advanced cancer spread stage metastasis. Although antioxidants are being explored as anti- carcinogens, they offer little protection. Antioxidants are important to neutralize the oxidative stress created both in normal and cancer cells during active cancer. Oxidative stress in ulcer initiated in gastric-parietal cell, up regulates the H+K+ ATPase level, which in turn dumps H+ into the lumen of the stomach resulting in acidity. In the current study, we address nutraceutical properties from selected dietary sources such as Potato (Solanum tuberosum), Grapes (Vitis vinifera) and Ginger (Zingiber officinale) individually as well as in different combinations. Since oxidative stress have been shown to be involved at all steps of cancer and ulcers such as DNA damage/ cellular damage, metastasis, invasion, gastric damage and mucosal imbalance.
