In vivo and in vitro antioxidant potentials of aqueous and ethanol extracts of the leaves of Bauhinia tomentosa L.

  • 1, ,

Bauhinia tomentosa, belonged to the family Caesalpiniaceae, is a well known plant species for its various biological properties. Aqueous and ethanol extracts of B. tomentosa leaves were tested for their antioxidant potentials both in vitro and in vivo. The in vitro tests included DPPH assays, Ferric Reducing Power assay, Nitric oxide radical scavenging assay, Superoxide anion radical scavenging assay, ABTS radical scavenging assay and hydroxyl radical scavenging assay. The above test methods showed the antioxidant potentiality of the leaf extracts of Bauhinia tomentosa leaf extracts in vitro. The in vivo methods include SOD, GSH and LPO tests. All the tested methods showed the presence of antioxidant potentials of the B. tomentosa in vivo.

Keywords: Bauhinia tomentosa L. - aqueous and ethanol extracts- in vivo and in vitro antioxidant activities.
