Abstract

A COMPARATIVE ANALYIS OF PHYTOCHEMICAL AND ANTIOXIDANT PROFILE OF PAEDARIA FOETIDA.L WILD AND CULTIVATED VARIETIES

Manasi Sahoo and Sunita Bhatnagar*

ABSTRACT

Paederia foetida L. is one of the vulnerable medicinal plants of Odisha, which is collected from the wild. In the present study a comparison was made between the wildly collected variety with that of cultivated variety for its phytochemical and antioxidant potential. Phytochemical profiling of both revealed the presence of saponins, tannins and phlobotanins in the polar extracts. Anti oxidant activity was ascertained using DPPH and FRAP assays. Significant antioxidant activity to the tune of 84-85% was obtained in both the sample in DPPH assay. Comparative analysis of phenolic contents of wild and cultivated variety had no significant variations i.e., cultivated-3.044mg GAE/ml and wild-3.016mg GAE/ml. Concentration of flavonoids in wild was 0.647mg QE/ml which was comparable with the cultivated variety i.e., 0.627mg QE/ml. Thus, all the above parameter showed wild and cultivated samples at par with each other in most of the medicinal properties.

Keywords: Saponins, tannins, phlobotanins, DPPH assay, FRAP assay.
