The objective of the present study was to evaluate the phytochemical constituent and antioxidant activity of Green tea and Guduchi aqueous extract. Phytochemical screening was performed by the well-known tests protocol available in the literature using standard. The antioxidant properties of aqueous extract of selected plants were evaluated, through determination of H2O2 radical scavenging assay. The phytochemical screening revealed the presence of various phytoconstituents and showed greater H2O2 radical scavenging assay activity (IC50 = 155.003 and 169.7683). Consequently, the plants would be considered as promising sources of antioxidant phytochemicals.
