Abstract

The present work was targeted to determine the total phenolic and flavonoidal content along with the determination of anti-oxidant behavior of methanolic root extract of Heliotropium indicum linn. The result reveals that 400 ± 7.31 mg Gal1ic acid equiva1ent of phenolic content and 540 ±59.34 mg quercetin equiva1ents of flavonoidal content was present in per gram dry weight of plant extract. The antioxidant data obtained from the work reveal that as the concentration increases the radical scavenging activity also increased. At 1000 μg/ml it has shown 91% inhibition. From this study, It was understood that anti-oxidant behavior of root extract is associated with total phenolic and flavonoidal content of extract.
