  • Abstract

    Ethano botanical search reveals use of many traditional herbs in the treatment of cancer, which are usually free from side effects, are economical and also easily accessible to humans.Using DPPH, Nitricoxide, Superoxide radical scavenging activity and Ferric reducing antioxidant power assay to investigate the antioxidant potential of crude ethanolic extracts from the leaves of Eclipta alba and Wedelia chinensis, it was found that the ethanolic extracts exhibited a stronger antioxidant activity. The extracts showed the inhibition in a dose dependant manner. The results were expressed as IC50. Eclipta alba showed higher reducing activity in DPPH assay and FRAP assay. Wedelia chinensis showed potent radical scavenging activity for Nitricoxide and Superoxide radicals. Both the medicinal plants are a potential source of natural antioxidants.
