The present study was aimed to evaluate the free radical scavenging activity of two fractions from the leaves of Indigofera Aspalathoides. Four invitro models namelyDPPH radical, ABTS radical, Nitric oxide radical and hydroxyl radical scavenging assays were used to analyze the activity. Amount of polyphenolic compounds, major phytochemical with antioxidant activity was also estimated. Both fractions displayed significant antioxidant activity when compared to standard antioxidants.
