Keywords: Ethanolic crude extracts | Terminalia chebula | Folk medicines | arthritis | phytopathogens | Enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants

In vitro screening of ethanolic crude extracts of Indian medicinal plants Terminalia chebula, Centella asatica, Solanum xanthocarpum were studied that have been popularly used as folk medicines. The main characteristic of an antioxidant is its ability to trap free radicals and also reduce the risk of chronic diseases including cancer, central nervous system injury, arthritis and heart diseases. Scientific information on antioxidant properties of various natural sources is still rather scarce. A variety of free radical scavenging antioxidants are found in plants. The results provided evidence that the studied plants might indeed be potential sources of natural antioxidant and antimicrobial agents.
