  • Abstract

    The aim of present study is to investigate the phytochemical profile and antioxidant activities of pods of Moringa oleifera against free radicals using specific in vitro standard procedures. The antioxidant activity of the Hydro-ethanolic extract of pods of Moringa oleifera was evaluated by free radical scavenging activity using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazil (DPPH), FRAP assay, reducing power assay, FTC, TBA and Non specific assay. The results of the assay were then compared with a natural antioxidant Quercitin, rutin, BHA and BHT. On the basis of present investigation the extract showed high significance (p<0.001) as compared to standards. The extract of the pods of Moringa oleifera is a good source of compounds with antioxidant properties while the extract also exhibited significant free radical scavenging activity, reducing power activity and Total antioxidant activity.
