So for my final year project, I measured plasma antioxidant levels of participants after they took a capsule. Unfortunately, the capsules didn't work and actually did the opposite I wanted. They decreased the antioxidant activity.
It was supposed to increase the antioxidant activity because that's what all the research says.
I can't find any information to justify that it lowered it

Explain how it had the adverse effect and errors may have been resulted from the size/volume of the capsule. Maybe impurities were present within it beforehand? Treat it as an anomaly or investigate further with repeated trials and different amounts of plasma antioxidant.

Check out the steps again and ask your lecturer for clarification
