Phytochemical Screening, Relationship of Total Phenolic with Antioxidant Activity Of Ethanol and Methanol Extracts of Kesambi (Schleichera oleosa (Lour.) Oken) Bark

Phenolic content has a role in antioxidant activity. The higher the phenolic content of a test sample, the higher the antioxidant activity, which is indicated by a smaller IC50 value. Methanol and

Hormonal profile and haematological parameters of Wistar albino rats treated with methanolic and aqueous leaf extracts of Schleichera oleosa

The study suggests that the prolonged treatment of Wistar rats with both low dose and high dose of methanolic as well as the aqueous extract of Schleichera oleosa is not toxic and they increased the amount of testosterone in the blood which is indicative of their testosterone enhancement.



Antihypertensive effect of aqueous extract of Elaeocarpus ganitrus Roxb. seeds in renal artery occluded hypertensive rats.

Elevated blood pressure of the animals was significantly decreased by the aqueous extract of E. ganitrus at the dose levels of 25, 50 and 100mg/kg, i.v. Captopril, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors showed significantly (p<0.05) reduced in the elevated blood pressure.

Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Activity of Pleurotus tuber-regium (Rumph. ex Fr.) Singer

Oxidative stress and inflammation are inextricably connected to each other. Phytochemicals are the major therapeutic components of ethnomycologically potent macrofungi which inhibit generation of

Antihypertensive efficacy of Lippia nodiflora – whole plant on uninephrectomized doca – salt hypertensive rats

The antihypertensive activity of Lippia nodiflora is concluded in the DOCA-Salt hypertensive wister rats.

Preliminary Phytochemical Analysis of the Extracts of Psidium Leaves

Amritphale (Psidium guajava L.), is a small tree in Myrtaceae family, traditionally used in treatment of several diseases (inflammation, diabetes, hypertension, wounds, pain and fever). The present

Hepatoprotective efficacy of medicinal mushroom Pleurotus tuber-regium

The activity of aspartate aminotransferase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase and concentration of bilirubin significantly increased in P. tuber-regium extract-treated hepatotoxic rats while concentration of total protein and serum albumin significantly decreased in comparison to control animals, averting toxic effects of CCl 4 .

Distribution of Phenolic Contents, Antidiabetic Potentials, Antihypertensive Properties, and Antioxidative Effects of Soursop (Annona muricata L.) Fruit Parts In Vitro

The enzymes inhibitory and antioxidants potentials of the extracts could be attributed to their phenolic distributions which could be among the scientific basis for their use in the management of diabetes and hypertension.

Phytochemical analysis with free radical scavenging, nitric oxide inhibition and antiproliferative activity of Sarcocephalus pobeguinii extracts

The high selectivity index of the Sarcocephalus pobeguinii leaf extract indicates the potential of using this extract in cancer therapy and suggests that the radical scavenging capacity of extracts may contribute to a prediction of their anticancer property.

Phytochemical profile and free radical nitric oxide (NO) scavenging activity of Averrhoa bilimbi L. fruit extract

The GC–MS report on this fruit proves that natural products have pharmacologically and biologically active compounds and A. bilimbi L. fruit extract is a rich source of phytochemicals (natural products) with biological activity.

Antioxidant and free radical scavenging potential of Citrullus colocynthis (L.) Schrad. methanolic fruit extract

The highest antioxidant and free radical scavenging ability of the fruit extract was observed at a concentration of 2500 μg mL-1 and the presence of phenolic compounds prompted us to evaluate its antioxidant activity.
