    In the present study selected mangrove plant leaf extracts were screened. The mangroves, such as Avicennia and Excoecaria Agallocha (Euphorbiaceae) were selected for this study. The crude extracts from dried leaf of the mangroves were extracted using soxhlet extraction method and obtained extracts were concentrated by using rotary evaporator. Two solvents Methanol and Ethyl acetate were used to extract the leaf material. The crude extracts obtained were evaluated for the antioxidant and anticancer activity of mangrove plants of Avicennia and Excoecaria Agallocha using DPPH and MTT Assay respectively. Our results clearly indicate that the antioxidant and anticancer activities of the plant Avicennia and Excoecaria Agallocha.
