Total Phenolic Content, Flavonoid Content and Antioxidant Potential of Wild Vegetables from Western Nepal
TLDR
It is demonstrated that these wild edible leafy plants could be a potential source of natural antioxidants and a strong correlation between antioxidant activity with total phenolic and total flavonoid content was found.
FREE RADICAL SCAVENGING CAPACITY AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF YOUNG LEAVES AND BARKS OF ACACIA NILOTICA (L.) DEL
There has been growing interest in the beneficial health effects of consuming fruits and vegetables. Mainly, the presence of phenolic antioxidants is believed to have the protective mechanisms. In
Antioxidant and Free Radical Scavenging Activity of Certain Dietary and Medicinal Plant Extracts

The Antioxidant and Free Radical Scavenging Effects of Extracts of Seeds of Some Neglected Legumes of South-East Nigeria
The antioxidant and free radical scavenging capacity of five legumes namelyMucuna pruriens, Mucuna slonei, Monodora myristica, Mucuna rostrata, Curcubita pepo and Legioneria spherica were assayed.
Screening of free radical scavenging capacity and antioxidant activities of Rosmarinus officinalis extracts with focus on location and harvesting times
Methanolic extracts from the leaves of Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) harvested from different locations of Turkey at four different times of the year were analyzed by HPLC, and their radical
In vitro Antioxidant and Free Radical Scavenging Activity of Extracts of Rosa damascena Flower Petals.
Introduction: Rosa damascena mill L., well-known as Rose, has numerous pharmacological properties including antioxidant, antitussive, relaxant effect on tracheal chains, hypnotic, antibacterial and
Investigation of the antioxidant properties of five aromatic plants in model food systems
In this PhD it has been analyzed the antioxidant activity of five plants: Camelia sinensis, Gentian lutea, Betula pendula, Convolvulus arvensis and Arctostaphylos uva-ursi. An Electronic
Antioxidant activity of organic and aqueous leaf extracts of Cassia occidentalis L. in relation to their phenolic content
TLDR
The in vitro models clearly establish the antioxidant potency of leaf extracts of C. occidentalis and show that phenolics may contribute maximally to HRS and MCA and to a lesser extent to NOS activity.
In vitro antioxidant activity of Vetiveria Zizanioides root extract.
TLDR
Results obtained in the present study clearly indicates that V zizanioides scavenges free radicals, ameliorating damage imposed by oxidative stress in different disease conditions and serve as a potential source of natural antioxidant.

Antioxidant Activity of Selected Medicinal Plants
Commonly used medicinal plant extracts with standardized content of polyphenols were investigated for their total antioxidant activity (TAA). Green tea, oligomeric procyanidins (from grape seed and
Antioxidant flavonoids and chlorogenic acid from the leaves ofEriobotrya japonica
TLDR
The antioxidant activity of Eriobotrya japonica was determined by measuring the radical scavenging effect on DPPH radical and lipid peroxidation produced when mouse liver homogenate was exposed to the air at 37°C, using 2-thiobarbituric acid.
Antioxidant activity of dietary polyphenols as determined by a modified ferric reducing/antioxidant power assay.
TLDR
The antioxidant (AO) activity of polyphenols (PPs) was determined for the first time using a modified FRAP (ferric reducing/antioxidant power) assay and polyphenol's AO efficiency seemed to depend on the extent of hydroxylation and conjugation.
Antioxidant activity of plant extracts containing phenolic compounds.
TLDR
High activities were found in tree materials, especially in willow bark, spruce needles, pine bark and cork, and birch phloem, and in some medicinal plants including heather, bog-rosemary, willow herb, and meadowsweet and potato peel and beetroot peel extracts showed strong antioxidant effects.
Antioxidative activity and safety of the 50 ethanolic extract from red bean fermented by Bacillus subtilis IMR-NK1.
TLDR
The results suggested that the 50% ethanolic extract was safe in genotoxicity and showed less scavenging effect on the DPPH radical and reducing power than alpha-tocopherol and BHT, but better Fe(2+)-chelating ability.
Antioxidative properties of cardoon (Cynara cardunculus L.) infusion against superoxide radical, hydroxyl radical, and hypochlorous acid.
TLDR
This study examined the antioxidant activity of cardoon lyophilized infusion against superoxide radical, hydroxyl radical, and hypochlorous acid.
Scavenging Effect of Methanolic Extracts of Peanut Hulls on Free-Radical and Active-Oxygen Species
The scavenging effect of methanolic extracts of peanut hulls (MEPH) on free-radical and active-oxygen species was investigated. MEPH showed marked activity as a radical scavenger in the experiment
POTENTIAL NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS FROM SASKATCHEWAN INDIGENOUS PLANTS
TLDR
The extract of bearberry exhibited the highest activity, followed by those of wild licorice, senega, echinacea and horsetail, and Phenolic compounds proved to be, at least in part, responsible for the observed antioxidative activity.
