Abstract:

Euphorbia hirta Linn. belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae and is widely known for its medicinal properties and extensively used globally. E. hirta leaves have been investigated for qualitative & quantitative evaluation such as microscopical, physical, and qualitative as well as quantitative evaluation of essential phytoconstituents inclusive of overall phenolic content, flavonoid content & antioxidant potential. This study aimed to screen the antioxidant potential of Hydro alcoholic, Ethyl acetate, and Acetone extracts of E. hirta Linn. Extracts (EH-HA, EH-EA, and EH-AC respectively). The results of 2, 2-diphenyl-1-pycrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging assay and lipid per oxidation inhibition assay confirmed that EH-EA turned into the strongest antioxidant (IC50 = 95.05 ± zero.01µg/ml) compared to EH-HA (IC50 = 261.83 ± 0.01 µg/ml) & EH-AC (IC50 = 318.40 ± zero.01µg/mL) extracts. Our study results endorse that E. hirta Linn. extracts possess tremendous antioxidant activity. Results show that this plant might be an awesome supply of natural antioxidants and a probable pharmaceutical complement. The various 3 analyzed extracts; EH-EA extract has the strongest activities and must be used to decide the phytochemicals and mechanisms of these activities.
