ABSTRACT
Safer antioxidants suitable for long term use are needed to prevent or stop the progression of free radical mediated disorders. In this study, the antioxidant activity of hydroethanolic extract of stem bark of Ougeinia oojeinensis (Roxb.) (HEBO) was studied using various in vitro assays. The antioxidant activity of the extract was evaluated by using the free radical scavenging activity assay (DPPH method), reducing power assay. The findings indicated promising antioxidant activity of the hydroethanolic extract of stem bark of Ougeinia oojeinensis (Roxb.) and needs further exploration for its effective use in both modern and traditional system of medicines.
