ABSTRACT

Free radicals or highly reactive oxygen class are able of inducing oxidative injuries to human body. Antioxidants are the compounds which terminate the attack of reactive species and reduce the risk of diseases. The present study was conducted to determine the antioxidant properties of two medicinal plants Camellia sinensis and Tinospora Cordifolia using two methods DPPH and Reducing power assay. The extract of Camellia sinensis aqueous extract exhibited good antioxidant activity as compared to aqueous extract of Tinospora cordifolia in both the methods. These differences might be due to their different antioxidant mechanisms or variations in their ability to scavenge free radicals.

Keywords: Camellia sinensis, Tinospora Cordifolia, Antioxidant, DPPH, Reducing power assay
