ABSTRACT

Moringa oleifera Linn, the most widely cultivated species of a monogeneric family Moringaceae. Moringa oleifera is one of the 14 species of family Moringaceae, native to India, Africa, Arabia, Southeast Asia, South America, the Pacific and Caribbean Islands. The present investigation deals with the evaluation of antioxidant activity of the leaves of Moringa oleifera using Fenton Reaction. The dried leaves of Moringa oleifera was extracted with methanol using a Soxhlet extractor. The total phenolics content of leaf as determined by Fenton reaction and was found to be good antioxidant activity as different dose concentrations. The antioxidant activity of plant extract was carried out with ascorbic acid as a standard reducing agent. The present results were made with the use of UV-Visible Spectrophotometer. In this plant Moringa oleifera leaf Extract there was a remarkable concentration dependent free radical scavenging and reducing power was exhibited. In conclusion the present study indicates that Moringa oleifera leaf extract may be a potential source of natural antioxidant.
