Abstract:

The ethanolic extract of leaves from Anisomeles malabarica was tested for in vitro antioxidant using various free radical scavenging assays, such as 2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH), chelating ability, reducing power, 2,2’-azinobis-(3-ethyl-benzothiazoline-6-sulfonicacid) (ABTS), hydroxy radical, nitric oxide, superoxide radical and ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) were performed. All the concentrations of leaves extract showed effective free radical scavenging and antioxidant potential. The various antioxidant activities were compared with standard antioxidants such as ascorbic acid, EDTA, mannitol and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA). Thus, the results obtained in the present study indicate that A.malabarica extract have more potential in vitro antioxidants and nutritional value, thereby this plant can be recommended as a potential natural economical viable and eco-friendly source and can be applied for land reclamation under agricultural sector in future.
