M.C. Lallianchhunga, L. Inaotombi Devi* C. Lalmuanthanga, C. Lalchhandama P.K. Subudhi and M. Ayub Ali

ABSTRACT

Callicarapa arborea, commonly known as Beautyberry Tree belongs
to Verbenaceae family. It is widely used in traditional medicine for
treatment of jaundice, fever, headache, stomachache, skin and scorpion
bites diseases. The fresh leaves of the plant were washed, air dried in
shade, ground to powder and subjected to cold maceration using
methanol as per the standard procedure, condensed by subjecting to a
rotary evaporator and lyophilized. The methanolic extract prepared
was analyzed for antioxidant activity by three different in vitro
methods; namely (1) DPPH free radical scavenging activity, (2) Ferric
reducing antioxidant potential (FRAP) assay and (3) Total phenolic
contents by spectrophotometeric method. In the radical scavenging
measurement method of DPPH and ferric iron reducing ability assay,
the antioxidant activities were 9.78±0.12 mg and 12.81±0.64 mg Trolox equivalent
respectively per gram of dried leaves.

Keywords: Callicarpa arborea, antioxidant activity, DPPH, FRAP, Total phenolic.
