ABSTRACT:
Alcoholic extract, butanolic and ethyl acetate fractions of Bergenia ciliata leaves were evaluated for antioxidant activity using 2,2-Diphenyl-1-Picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging and superoxide scavenging system along with preliminary phytochemical investigation. Ethyl acetate fraction significant antioxidant potential as radical scavenger over the alcoholic extract and butanolic fraction. Three phenolic compounds, a steroid and tannins have been isolated.
