Abstract

Various parts of Bombax malabaricum are used in traditional Indian medicine for the treatment of inflammatory diseases, diarrhea, fever, acute swelling and diuretic. Current research on Bombax malabaricum DC is aimed at finding of natural plants derived from antioxidants that provide sustenance through additional components or synergistic training as the plant's cellular reinforcements are necessary to prevent the movement of interfaced free radical problems. The antioxidant activity in Bombax malabaricum DC can be detected by alcoholic extract fraction using unique laboratory models. These include free radical activity of 1,1-Diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazil (DPPH) assay, ABTS assay, total antioxidant capacity, and o-phenanthroline assay/Iron chelating assay. The plant contains a large number of phenolic and flavonoid compounds. The plant shows great antioxidant activity. The thought was taught to investigate the use of the Bombax malabaricum


Keywords: Bombax malabaricum, Antioxidant, DPPH, ABTS, O-phenanthroline.
