Evaluation of Antimicrobial and Antioxidant Activity of different Ancient Herbal Plants

Kumari Astha Yadav, Kumud Madan


Traditional remedies, as is well known, have a long history in the world and continue to give valuable and appropriate techniques for treating a variety of disorders. The present study was carried out to evaluate the antibacterial activity and antioxidant activity of four different ancient plants Argemone mexicana, Aegle marmelos, Phaseolus vulgaris and Moringa oleifera extracted by using the ethanolic extracts were screened for the antimicrobial and antioxidant activity. The organisms used for antimicrobial activity were Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus mirabilis, Bacillus subtilis, Salmonella typhi, and Staphylococcus aureus. Using the 1-1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) bleaching techniques, the antioxidant activity (AOA) was measured. The total phenolic content (TPC) in the extract was determined spectrophotometrically by the Folin CioCalteus method, Ferric reducing antioxidant power(FRAP), ABTS assay and Total Flavonoids Content(TFC). The plant shows a high amount of phenolic and flavonoid compounds. Within that plant has high antioxidant activity.
