Abstract:
Antioxidant activity of the formulated Moringa Super Greens Powder containing different parts of Moringa oleifera was assessed. The methanolic extract of MSGP was used to determine the percentage inhibition in 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical scavenging assay, total phenolic content (TPC) and total flavonoid content (TFC). The results of TPC and TFC were compared with the M. oleifera plant parts (leaf, pod with pulp and flower), while the percentage inhibition was compared with standard antioxidants (both natural and synthetic). In addition, preliminary phytochemical screening of MSGP was also carried out. The results thus revealed that MSGP could be an effective alternative to synthetic antioxidants.
