In vitro Antioxidant Activities of Aqueous Extract of Ficus Bangalensis Linn. Root

V.K. Gupta and S.K. Sharma    

Abstract: In this study, antioxidant activity of aqueous extract of Ficus bengalensis Linn. (FBWE) root was investigated for its free radical scavenging activity by adopting various in vitro models. The extract was investigated for its antioxidant activity by 1,1-diphenyl, 2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity, hydroxyl radical scavenging activity, reducing capacity, hydrogen peroxide activity, determination of total phenolic content using Folin-Ciocalteu’s phenolic reagent. FBWE showed maximum scavenging of DPPH radical (96.07%) at 250 μg mL-1 concentration and hydrogen peroxide (69.23%) at 1000 μg mL-1 concentration. Reducing power was also dose dependent and total phenolic content evaluated that 1 mg of FBWE contains 25.34 μg equivalent of gallic acid. The extract showed significant results when compared with the standard compounds.
