Phytochemical Analysis, Estimation and Antioxidant Activity in Bacopa monnieri(L.)
Keywords:Antioxidant, Baccopa monnieri, DPPH
Bacopa monnieri, an important medicinal plant belonging to the family of Scrophulariceae, which has been valued for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, was extracted with methanol solvents for the purpose of preliminary screening. The different qualitative chemical tests were performed on the extracts to detect the various phyto constituents or antioxidants present in them. The phytochemical screening reveals the presence of many therapeutically important compounds such as glycosides, alkaloids, saponins phenols. Since the phenolic compounds have remarkable antioxidant activities, our worl aims at evaluating the antioxidant activities, by the in vitro models such as DPPH method. From the present investigative phytochemical analysis of Bacopa monnieri plant extract it is revealed that the antioxidant activity of the plant material is due to the presence of phenolic compounds.
