Abstract(RBIP-223)

Over the past decade, herbal medicine has become an item of global importance, with both medicinal and economic implications. A number of plants have been traditionally consumed as natural antioxidant agents, which are safe to be used in the treatment of various diseases. The objective of the present study was to investigate the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiulcer potential of Momordica charantia seeds belongs to the family Cucurbitaceae. Extraction was done with methanol by cold maceration for 72 hours. The free radical scavenging activity was determined by hydrogen peroxide method. The extract showed significant percentage inhibition i.e. 70.9 at 100 µg/ml against standard 77.12 at 100 µg/ml. The extract was further evaluated for antioxidant activity by qualitative DPPH method which shows the presence of antioxidant component. Further the methanolic seeds extract will be evaluated for antiulcer and anti-inflammatory activities. The result reveals that Momordica charantia seeds can be used as dietary antioxidant.
