ABSTRACT:
Acalypha indica (Euphorbiaceae) is commonly known as Indian Copperleaf and Indian Nettle. It is a common annual herb, which grows in the hotter parts of India like Bihar, Assam and southwards of Kerala. The ethanol and aqueous extracts of root were screened for antioxidant activity using Nitric Oxide Scavenging activity method, which showed significant percentage of inhibition in dose dependent manner. As antioxidant therapy is found to be useful in complicated disease status related with free radical activity, the present study might be extended for the formulation and evaluation of different antioxidant herbal dosage forms.
KEYWORDS:
Acalypha indica, antioxidant, Nitric Oxide Scavenging activity.
