The In-Vitro and In-Vivo antioxidant activity of peel of methanolic extract of Punica granatum has been investigated by 1,1, Diphenyl, 2-picryl hydrazyl free radical (DPPH), Reducing power and Nitric oxide, Lipid peroxidation scavenging Method. The methanolic extract of peel of Punica granatum showed significant antioxidant activity by inhibiting DPPH, Reducing power and when compared with standard ascorbic acid, antioxidant activity by Nitric oxide assay revealed that IC50 of Punica granatum was comparable with Standard (Curcumin) IC50, In-Vivo antioxidant activity Punica granatum on ethanol-induced changes were more or less similar and comparable with the vitamin C treatment.
