The present study attempts to investigate the antioxidant activity and chromatographic profiling using HPLC and GC-MS technique of selected Indian Medicinal herbs. Evaluation of antioxidant activity of the methanolic extract of whole plant of Marsilea-quadrifolia (Sample 1), whole plant of Trigonella-foenum-graecum (sample 2), flowers of Cassia-auriculata (Sample 3), leaves of Mangifera-indica (sample 4), flower of Musa-paradisiaca (Sample 5), seeds of Eugenia-jambolana (sample 6), leaves of Aegle-marmelos (sample 7) and poly herbal Extract (PHE) with equal ratio of the mixture of the seven plants powder (Sample 8) were investigated by DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazyl) assay, Hydrogen peroxide assay and Nitric oxide scavenging activity. Percentage of inhibition and half-inhibition concentration, IC50 values were reported. GC-MS and HPLC analysis of PHE revealed the presence of various Chemical compounds which mainly includes polyphenols and flavanoids responsible for antioxidant activity.
