Zanthoxylum alatum Roxb., is a medicinal plant which abundantly grows in the hilly areas of Pakistan. The dried fruit of the plant is used as condiment and has excellent spice value. In the present study, the antioxidant activity of the Z. alatum whole fruit was evaluated by several In vitro systems e.g., lipid peroxidation, 2,2-diphenlyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), hydroxyl radicals scavenging activities, phosphomolybdenum assay and metal chelation activity. The ethanolic extracts of fruit showed… Expand
