This is the first time we are featuring the journal on the blog! African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines focuses on the latest advancements and research in medicinal plants, traditional, complementary and alternative medicines, and food and agriculture.

This article details a study done in eastern Nigeria to assess antioxidant properties in popularly consumed plant foods and beverages. Among the classes of food and beverages examined, the results indicated that coffee, star apples, thyme and raices (alcoholic beverage) could have antioxidant properties. Among these classes, vegetables and spices were found to have the most antioxidant properties.
