Abstract:
The study was carried out to investigate the presence of different phytochemicals as well as to determine the antioxidant activity of Lakhanbhog and Langra mango (pulp & leaf) of Malda district, West Bengal. Phytochemical screening of the mango pulp and leaf was carried out following standard protocols. Antioxidant activity was determined by DPPH free radical scavenging assay. Tannin, phlobatannin, terpenoid, glycoside, phenol, flavonoid, carbohydrate, and protein were present in Lakhanbhog and Langra mango (pulp & leaf), whereas saponin, anthraquinone, cholesterol were absent. Lakhanbhog & Langra mango pulp and leaf also showed significant DPPH radical scavenging activity. Lakhanbhog and Langra mango (pulp & leaf) are the good sources of different pharmaceutically important phytochemicals that exhibit potent antioxidant activity and thereby indicating their importance from the medicinal point of view.
