Abstract

The aim of the study was to evaluate comparative antioxidant activity of different extract of Andrographispaniculata(AP) and Asparagus racemosus(AR). Simultaneously to observe the antioxidant effect of polyherbal formulation of both plant. In present study alcoholic and water extract of both plants was prepared and antioxidant activity was measured by nitric oxide scavenging activity and TBARS method (in vitro) and lipid peroxidation method (in vivo). Results indicate 1) Alcoholic extract of AR is more active than its aqueous extract. 2) Aqueous extract of AP is more active than its alcoholic extract. 3) Mixture of both alcoholic extract (polyherbal) show the high antioxidant activity compare to solo extract.
