ABSTRACT:
The study was aimed to evaluate the dose dependent antioxidant activity of aqueous extract of dried bark of Ficus glomerata by site specific and non site specific antioxidant activity. The extract was found to possess excellent antioxidant activity and no pro-oxidant activity. The extract showed presence of flavonoids, phenolics, terpenoids, carbohydrates and alkaloids. The antioxidant activity may be attributed to flavonoids and phenolics present in the drug.
