Phytochemical Analysis and Invitro Antioxidant Activity of Indigenous Medicinal Plants
Keywords:Anti-oxidant effect, Swertia chirayita, Ficus glomerata, DPPH, soxhlation
Objective: This objective of study to evaluate the polyherbal formulation of ethanolic extracts of Swertia chirayitaand Ficus glomerata for their potential antioxidant properties.
Methods: The ethanolic extracts of Swertia chirayita and Ficus glomerata were compounds were done by the method of soxhlation. In vitro antioxidant activity was evaluated by DPPH scavenging activity.
Result: Results obtained of antioxidant activity using DPPH method, the effect of antioxidant on DPPH isbelieved to be due to their hydrogen-donating ability.The dose-response curve of DPPH radical scavenging activity of hydroalcoholic extracts of Ficus glomerata. It was observed that the methanol extract showed IC 50 value of 72.23 µg/ml ascompare to standard ascorbic acid 17.89 µg/ml.
Conclusion: It was concluded that the dose-response curve of DPPH radical scavenging activity of various methanolic extracts of Swertia chirayitaandFicus glomerata having promising in vitro antioxidant activity.
