Abstract:

Bryonopsis laciniosa is an annual climber with bright red fruits is a traditional plant used in India. The plant is used in treatment of broad range of diseases and disorders. In the present study, chloroform extract of B. laciniosa fruits were used to evaluate in vitro antioxidant study. Antioxidant assays like DPPH, ABTS, H2O2 and FRAP were used to measure the antioxidant capacity. Chloroform extract showed the effective antioxidant activity in all assays compared to ascorbic acid and BHT. The present study shows potential application of Bryonopsis laciniosa fruits suggesting their potential application as a health-promoting functional ingredient or natural preservative in foods.


Keywords: Bryonopsis laciniosa fruits, antioxidant assay, DPPH, ABTS, Hydrogen peroxide assay.
