Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine the antioxidant activities and phytochemical analysis of Eclipta prostrata. The present study was focused to evaluate the antioxidant and phytochemical analysis of various solvent extracts of Eclipta prostrata leaves by most accepted methods such as determination of DPPH radical scavenging activity, total antioxidant activity, superoxide radical scavenging activity, hydroxyl radical scavenging activity and Preliminary phytochemical analysis. The results showed that the methanolic extract exhibited significant DPPH, superoxide and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities. In addition, the methanolic extract also showed high total antioxidant activity. The present investigation provides scientific and folkloric use of Eclipta prostrata as an antioxidant agent
