ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF ETHYL ACETATE EXTRACT OF GENUS AMARANTHUS LINN.Abstract
Plants possess good antioxidant capacity to get rid of free radicals that cause many lifestyle diseases especially cancer. Assessment of Antioxidant activity of Amaranthus Linn. leaves were evaluated by using in- vitro model. In the present study evaluation of ethyl acetate of extract of Amaranthus Linn. leaves with the help of two In-vitro antioxidant models were carried out for Nitric-oxide scavenging Activity and DPPH method. IC50 value was calculated and compared with standard Ascorbic acid. Ethyl acetate extract was found to be extremely effective in scavenging nitric-oxide (IC50 584.4 μg/ml to 1072 μg/ml). In inhibition of DPPH Radical Scavenging activity (IC50 260.6 μg/ml to 957 μg/ml). Ethyl acetate extract showed different levels of antioxidant activities in tested models.
