Abstract

The objective of the present investigation was to evaluate the antioxidant potential of ethanolic extract of aerial parts of Coleus vettiveroides. Antioxidant activity of ethanolic extract of Coleus vettiveroides was assessed by three different in-vitro model of measuring antioxidant profile i.e. total antioxidant activity, FRAP assay and estimation of total flavonoid. Significant total antioxidant activity was found in ethanolic extract of Coleus vettiveroides. The IC50 values of the ethanolic extract of Coleus vettiveroides and ascorbate were found to be 180µg/ml and 410µg/ml respectively. The ethanolic extract of Coleus vettiveroides also shows significant result in FRAP assay method. High flavonoid content was found in ethanolic extract of Coleus vettiveroides. The high antioxidant capacity observed for ethanolic extract of Coleus vettiveroides suggests that this plant could be used as an additive in the food industry providing good protection against oxidative damage.
