  • Abstract

    The present study was to design and evaluation of antioxidants activity of methanolic extract of Prosopis cineraria (Linn.). Anti-oxidants can neutralize the side effects of free radicals by scavenging or chain breaking (like vitamin A, C, -carotene, etc.) or some other mechanism of action. These antioxidants must be constantly replenished since they are ‘used up’ in the process of neutralizing free radicals. The activity of methanolic extract of stem bark of Prosopis Cineraria Linn.( MPCL) was compared with ascorbic acid as standard 10.52 µg/ml (y = 0.4992x + 101.25, 0.9921) and result is 193.54 µg/ml. Data were compared by student t – test and t- value found to be 112.08 which is considered extremely significant. The results of this study show that the MPCL can be used as easily accessible source of natural antioxidants and as a possible food supplement or in pharmaceutical industry.
