Abstract

In vitro Evaluation of Antioxidant Activity of Brugeiera Gymnorrhiza and Aegialitis Rotundifolia

Reddy ARK and Grace JR

Mangroves have wide applications in folk medicine since ages due to the presence of several bioactive compounds. The current study was aimed at an evaluation of antioxidant activity of two mangrove species. Leaf extracts of Brugeiera gymnorrhiza and Aegialitis rotundifolia were prepared in Chloroform, Acetone, Ethyl acetate, and Methanol. The crude extracts were screened for antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activity of these extracts was done by DPPH and FRAP assay. Methanol infusions demonstrate the highest antioxidant activity. The present study reveals the potential of leaf extracts of Brugeiera gymnorrhiza and Aegialitis rotundifolia as an antioxidant agent.
