Author(s):

Abstract:
Free radical scavenging activity is shown by the methanolic extract of Pholidota articulata (Orchidaceae). The inhibitory concentration (Ic50 values) of methanolic extract of Pholidota articulata is 196.03. At a concentration of 400mg/ml, the scavenging activity of methanolic extract Pholidota articulata reached 82.094%. The Free Radical scavenging activity of methanolic extract is done by diphenyl picryl hydrazine (DPPH) method. Though the DPPH radical scavenging abilities of the plant extracts were observed 400 mg/ml, the study showed that the extracts have the proton donating ability and could serve as free radical inhibitors or scavenging, acting possibly as primary antioxidants. The plant is found to be extensively used in the indigenous system of medicine for the treatment of pain and rheumatic fever, hyperactive states of the gastrointestinal tract, liver diseases, syphilis, infections, fever, pain, inflammations, rheumatism, as a laxative, blood purifier and for the relief of muscular pain.
