Alpinia purpurata (Vieill.) K. Schum belongs in the Zingiberaceae family and is a very popular garden plant in India, it possesses moderate antibacterial and anticancer activities. To study the antioxidant, cytotoxic and apoptotic activities of n-hexane leaf extract of A. purpurata; antioxidant activity was determined by measuring (i) the scavenging effect of plant extract against 2, 2-diphenyl-1picryl hydrazyl (DPPH) and 2, 2′-azinobis-3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonate (ABTS), hydroxyl…
