Abstract :
The antioxidant potential of Bacopa monnieri in vitro through DPPH free radical scavenging assay, was evaluated using ascorbic acid as standard. There was a concentration dependent increase in percentage inhibition of DPPH free radical by ascorbic acid and hydroethanolic extract of Bacopa monnieri. The IC50 of the extract was found to be 28g/ml and 270g/ml for ascorbic acid and plant extract, with regression coefficients (r2) 0.94 and 0.89, respectively. The hydroethanolic extract of Bacopa monnieri has a significant antioxidant potentiality comparable to a standard antioxidant like ascorbic acid.
