ABSTRACT:
In recent years seaweeds have increasingly attracted interest in the search for new drugs and have been shown to be a primary source of bioactive natural compounds and biomaterials. In the present investigation, the biochemical composition of the red seaweed Gracilaria edulis, collected seasonally in the tuticorin (South India), was assayed by means of advanced analytical techniques, in the present study the hydro-alcoholic extract of the Edulis was taken for Hepatoprotective activity using paracetamol model. The Phenolic content of the extract was also determined and it can be expressed as gallic acid equivalent i.e 49.33±1.23 mg/g of the extract. The extract have found to show significant decrease in the level of biomarker release at 300mg/kg and 400mg/kg. But the bodyweight have not shown the significant increase.
