Screening for Antioxidant Activity in Traditionally Used Medicinal Herbs: Comparison of Total Phenols, Radical Scavenging and Dna Damage Protecting Activity Rachna Garg*, Devihalli Chikkaiah Mohana and Kiragandur Manjunath

Abstract

Herbal infusions of nine traditionally used medicinal plants were screened for total phenolic content (TPC), radical scavenging activity (RSA) and oxidative DNA damage protecting capacity by chemical assays. The TPC was determined in order to know its correlation with RSA. The extracts of T. cordifolia and C. spectabilis presented highest TPC values (34.21… (More)
