Abstract:
The present study was undertaken to find the antioxidant value of endangered medicinal plants in Gingee hills, Villupuram, Tamilnadu. Antioxidants have been reported to prevent oxidative damage caused by free radical and can be used in curing various human diseases. The endangered medicinal plants Zehneria scabra (tuber), Ormocarpum sennoides(leaf) and Bauhinia tomentosa (leaf) exhibits potent antioxidant activities. The study indicates that the presence of phenolic compounds and flavonoids in the medicinal plants can act as scavengers in preventing oxidative damages caused by the free radicals.
