Desmodium adscendens plant is widely used as juice or tea in various parts of the world against a wide range of diseases. This study determines the quality and the quantity of polyphenols, flavonoids, anthocyanins, and tannins in D. adscendens leaves by UV-spectrophotometry and RP-HPLC methods. In addition, the antioxidant capacity of these phenolic compounds is evaluated by ABTS (2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic)), DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1 picrylhydrazyl), and Cellular tests. D…

Phytochemical screening, antioxidant, antiulcer and toxicity studies on Desmodium adscendens (Sw) DC Fabaceae leaf and stem
Purpose : To assess the phytochemical profile, toxicity, as well as the antioxidant, and antiulcer activities of the methanol extracts of Desmodium adscendens stem and leaf. Methods : Maceration
Study on biological activities and chemical composi tion of extracts from Desmodium adscendens leaves
Phenolic compounds in Desmodium adscend ens leaves extract were isolated, identified characterized by HPLC, NMR and MS. Five phenolic compounds were identified, caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid,
Cellular antioxidant and antiproliferative activity of ethanolic extract of Coleus tuberosus
The results indicated that EEFC and EEPC and its bioactive compounds reduced phorbol miristate acetate (PMA)-induce oxidative stress, might be used as a potential source of natural antioxidants and antiproliferative agent.
Effect of tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.) seed on antioxidant activity, phytocompounds, physicochemical characteristics, and sensory acceptability of enriched cookies and mango juice
0–10% tamarind seed powder (TSP) was incorporated into mango juice and cookies and increased the pH and viscosity and reduced titratable acidity of juice and can thus be utilized as a source of natural antioxidants in food products.
Ethanol Extracts of Coleus tuberosusFlesh and Peel as a Potential Source of Natural Antioxidant and Breast Cancer Prevention Agent
This study examines the effects of ethanol extracts of Coleus tuberosus flesh and peel on T47D cancer cells. Antioxidant potential was evaluated through cellular antioxidant activity experiment, and
Phytochemical Screening of Leaves from Mangifera indica and Morus alba for Bioactive Compounds
The results provide scientific basis for traditional use of these extracts as affordable strategies for treatments of infectious, inflammatory and degenerative diseases, caused by bacteria, fungi, free radicals, urease and helminths.
Antioxidative, antiproliferative, and apoptosis effect of Coleus tuberosus flesh and peel ethanol extracts on cervical cancer cell lines
The purpose of this study is to determine the antioxidant activity, antiproliferation, apoptosis, and cell cycle arrest induced by Coleus tuberosus flesh and peel extracted with ethanol. The
Phytochemical screening and antibacterial activity of rosmarinus officinalis l. against Escherichia coli. local isolates
Flavonoids, terpenoids, reducing sugar and saponins were present in different concentrations, while tannin was absent in all parts of plant, and the antibacterial activity was determined against E. coli.
Bioactivities of Traditional Medicinal Plants in Alexandria
It was concluded that the fruit coat of C. colocynthis, pods of S. alexandrina, and leaves of A. aethiopicus might be excellent sources of natural products and have a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activities that could be used in the pharmaceutical industries and to control diseases.


Phytochemical Composition and Antioxidant Capacity of Three Malian Medicinal Plant Parts
This study evaluates the levels of total polyphenolic compounds in three Malian medicinal plants and determines their antioxidant potential and uses of plants are rationalized on the basis of their antioxidant capacity.
Evaluation of Antioxidant Properties of Phaulopsis fascisepala C.B.Cl. (Acanthaceae)
In vitro tests revealed the in vitro antioxidant activity of P. fascisepala leaf extract, which showed less scavenging effect on α,α,diphenyl-β-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical and less reducing power on Fe3+/ferricyanide complex but better Fe2+-chelating ability.
Antioxidant activity and phenolic compounds in selected herbs.
The antioxidant capacities (oxygen radical absorbance capacity, ORAC) and total phenolic contents in extracts of 27 culinary herbs and 12 medicinal herbs were determined and rosmarinic acid was the predominant phenolic compound in selected herbs.
Assessment of the Antioxidant and Reactive Oxygen Species Scavenging Activity of Methanolic Extract of Caesalpinia crista Leaf
It is concluded that 70% methanol extract of C. crista leaves acts as an antioxidant and ROS scavenger; which may be due to the presence of phenolic and flavonoid compounds.
