Abstract:

Ethnomedicine, or the use of plants for medical purposes, has been practiced for thousands of years, and indigenous peoples have been instrumental in the development of this ancient technique. The secondary metabolites found in plants, such as flavonoids and polyphenols, are abundant sources of antioxidants that guard against oxidative damage and provide a number of health benefits. Vachellia farnesiana, commonly known as sweet acacia, is a plant with significant pharmacological activities, including antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antimalarial properties. This study focused on extracting bioactive compounds from Vachellia farnesiana bark using ethyl acetate, evaluating its phytochemical composition, antioxidant potential, and anti-inflammatory activity. The results showed significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, indicating the therapeutic potential of Vachellia farnesiana as a natural remedy for oxidative stress and inflammation-related disorders.
