Abstract


The present study was aimed to evaluate antioxidant activity in hydroalcoholic extract of fruits of Terminalia chebula and Emblica officinalis. Antioxidant activity of the extracts was determined using diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH), NO and Total antioxidant assays. Extracts of both medicinal plant exhibited antioxidant potential but E. officinalis proved more active. The presence of antioxidant activity in the extracts showed that these plants have the potential to be an alternate source of natural antioxidants. In vivo study is needed for successful commercialization and to benefit the food and pharmaceutical industries.
