Nimisha G Nair, Shan P Muhammed and Mahesh Krishnan
The present study is to evaluate the in vitro free radical Scavenging activity of methanolic extract of Gymnostachyum warrieranum leaves. Here we study the in vitro free radical scavenging activity by using DPPH radical scavenging and hydroxyl radical scavenging methods. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. The present findings exhibited a concentration dependent free radical scavenging activity and it can be concluded that Gymnostachyum warrieranum has in vitro antioxidant activity.
