  • Free radicals contribute to more than one hundred disorders in humans. The ethanolic extract of M.arundinacea .L (Marantacea) was screened for antioxidant activity using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydroxyl (DPPH) quenching assay, 2,2’-azinobis-3-ethylbenzothiozoline-6-sulfonic acid (ABTS) cation decolorization test, Reducing power, scavenging capacity towards hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) radical, nitric oxide (NO) radical inhibition activity using established assay procedures and Ferric Reducing… CONTINUE READING
