  • Abstract

    In the present study, antioxidant potential of the methanol extract of the leaves and roots of Achyranthes aspera Linn. was evaluated by using 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) scavenging assay. The extract showed antioxidant activity in dose dependent manner. In DPPH scavenging assay the IC50 value of the leaves and root extracts were found to be 241.86μg/ml and 129.91μg/ml respectively, the IC50 value of the reference standard ascorbic acid was 7.81 μg/ml. This study revealed that methanolic extract of root possesses potent anti-oxidant activity than methanolic extract of leaves.
