PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND ANTI-OXIDANT POTENTIAL OF ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF POLYALTHIA LONGIFOLIA LEAVES
Keywords:Anti-oxidant activity, Polyalthia longifolia leaves
Medicinal herbs because of their therapeutic effect have been used for ages to treat a different type of diseases. Polyalthia longifolia has a wide range of pharmacological activity including anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-cancerous and anti-microbial properties. The main objective of this study was to use the Polyalthia longifolia ethanolic leaves extract and to evaluate their phyto-chemistry and anti-oxidant activity. In this study, in vitro DPPH assay has been utilized to know about anti-oxidant potential of Polyalthia longifolia leaves. Tannins, Alkaloids, Terpenoids, Flavonoids, Steroids, and Cardiac glycosides were found in the Polyalthia longifolia leaves during phytochemical analysis. However, Phlobatannin, Saponins, and Anthraquinone were not present. The ethanolic extract of P. longifolia leaves showed considerable anti-oxidant action. Polyalthia longifolia leaves have the ability to treat oxidative stress and can be utilized as an analgesic and anti-oxidant medication.
