Screening for antioxidant potential in methanolic leaf extract of Madhuca Indica L.
Yahya Khan and Sahera Nasreen
The antioxidant activity of the methanolic extract of the leaves of Madhuca indica was evaluated by free radical scavenging activity using 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazil (DPPH), reducing power assay. The results of the assay were then compared with a natural antioxidant ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and gallic acid. The Methanolic extract of the Leaves of Madhuca indica is a potent source of compounds with antioxidant properties while the extract also exhibited significant free radical scavenging activity. The methanolic extract of Madhuca indica was subjected to preliminary phytochemical studies. The results indicate the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, proteins, and carbohydrates.
