Antioxidant Potential of Roots of Clerodendrumserratum(Linn.)

Authors(2) :-Vaishali D. Murade, Sonali Dichayal

The objective of this study was to determine the antioxidant capacity of polyphenols extracted from the roots of the Clerodendrumserratum plant. Extracts CSRC, CSRA and CSREA were found to have high percentage of total phenolic and flavonoid content and strong 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical-scavenging activity. The results suggested that CSRC, CSREA and CSREAhas significant potential as a natural antioxidant to promote health and to reduce the risk of disease.
