The active components of Terminalia arjuna are tannins, triterpenoid saponin arjunic acid, arjunolic acid, arjungenin, and arjunglycosides [ 11 ]. Arjuna is used both externally and internally in gleets and urinary discharges as well as expectorant, aphrodisiac, tonic actkvity diuretic [ 10 ].

Therefore, this project was designed to investigate bioactive components phenolics and flavonoidsfree radical scavenging property and antioxidant activity of extracts from barks and leaves of arjuna plant indigenous to Pakistan. The antioxidants are molecules capable of decreasing or preventing the oxidation of substrate molecules.

Percent inhibition of linoleic acid peroxidation by synthetic antioxidant BHT was taken as control and compared with arjuna extracts. There is an ongoing quest in progress to search natural antioxidants from plant extracts as a safe alternate of synthetic antioxidants [ 3 ].

Antioxidat leave a message, we will get back you shortly. For extraction of flavonoids compounds, ethanol has been proved very appropriate solvents due to their low toxicity [ 13 ]. Free radical scavenging activity was evaluated using stable DPPH free radical ?

This work was carried out to investigate the antioxidant activity and free ajuna scavenging capacity of leaves and stem bark extracts teerminalia Terminalia arjuna arjuna prepared in aqueous ethanol water: Upon arrival in the laboratory the leaves and stem bark samples were washed thoroughly with tap water to remove any wastes and dust particles.

The plant Terminalia arjuna L. The percentage yield of the different arjuna extracts was found in the range of 6.
