EVALUATION OF ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF ETHANOLIC EXTRACTS OF LENS CULINARIS, VIGNA UNGUICULATA, DOLICHOS BIFLORUS AND PHALASEOUS VULGARIS SEEDS
The present investigation has been carried out to determine the antioxidant activity of the ethanolic extracts obtained from plant seeds belonging to family Leguminosae i.e., Lens culinaris, Vigna unguiculata, Dolichos biflorus and Phalaseous. Phenolic compounds present in the extracts showed the antioxidant and antiradical properties when investigated using a ferrous ion chelating ability and red...
HYPOLIPIDEMIC ACTIVITY OF ALOE VERA IN HYPERLIPIDEMIC RATS
The hypolipidemic activity of Aloe vera (Family: Liliaceae) extract has been studied in two models of hyperlipidemia in rats. In an acute model, hyperlipidemia was induced by injecting a single dose of triton WR-1339 (400mg/kg, b.w.) intraperitoneally in rats. Feeding with Aloe vera extract at the dose of 500 mg/ kg, b.w. exerted a significant lipid-lowering effect as assessed by the reversal of p...
