Abstract:
The free radicals are routinely produced by the body which brings many cellular cascades that can lead damage to the cells, tissues, cell function and macromolecules such as oxygen, lipids, proteins and DNA. Natural antioxidants are seen as promising agents to offer protection against oxidative stress related diseases. Lavatera cachemiriana plant species was undertaken to evaluate its In-vitro antioxidant potential through various assays like DPPH, reducing power, TAC, and ABTS. Results have demonstrated that methanolic roots extract have showed lower but statistically significant antioxidant activities against various free radicals as compared to reference standards. The free radical scavenging potential of L. cachemiriana reflects its use as an ethno-pharmacological medicine to prevent and treat different diseases
