Erratum

After publication of the original article [1], it was brought to our attention that the unit for concentration in the first column of Table 2 should read μg/mL. In addition, the 9th row in Table 2 should read EC50 (μg/mL).
Table 2

Percent of DPPH free radical scavenging activity and antioxidant strength of N-(2-mercaptopropionyl) glycine (MPG), vitamin C (Vit- C), grape seed proanthocyanidin (GP), B. monnieri n-butanolic fraction (BM-ButFr) or standard butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) against their respective concentrations
