Author(s):
Pubali Borgohain and BB Kakoti
Abstract:
Andrographis paniculata Nees is a medicinal plant used traditionally for the treatment of various diseases such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, ulcer, leprosy, skin diseases etc. In the present study, methanolic and petroleum ether extracts of the plant sample were taken and screened for the presence of secondary metabolites. The same extracts were again used for the antioxidant assays using DPPH and by estimation of their Total Flavonoid Content (TFC). The presence of most of the secondary metabolites was observed in the methanolic extract along with significant antioxidant activities compared to the petroleum ether extract.
