Abstract

Anti oxidant activity of methanolic extracts of female Borassus Flabellifer leaves and roots

Borassus flabellifer is a tall erect palm which can be recognized by its large and fan shaped leaves. The plant is used for the various ailments like secondary syphilis, antiperiodic, heart burns, liver and spleen enlargement etc. the various parts of the plant are a rich source of phyto constituents like gums, saponins, glycosides, carbohydrates, albuminoids, fats, vitamins A, B and C. Oxidation process is one of the most important routes for producing free radicals in food, drugs and even living systems. Lipid peroxidation in fats and fatty foods not only deteriorates their quality and brings about chemical spoilage, but also generates free radicals and reactive oxygen species. Free radicals cause many human diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiac reperfusion abnormalities, kidney and liver disease, fibrosis, atherosclerosis, arthritis, neuro-degenerative disorders, inflammation and aging. The present study evaluated the anti oxidant effect of methanolic extracts of Borassus flabellifer leaves and roots
