M. oleifera and A. sativum are the two important medicinal plants which are known to have various medicinal attributes. This study deals with phytochemical and in-vitro antioxidant studies of different flower extracts of M. oleifera and A. sativum. Outcome of the study clearly indicated that flower extracts of M. oleifera and A. sativum are rich in flavonoids and phenols and possess strong in-vitro antioxidant potential.
