ABSTRACT
We have examined antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of Indian medicinal plants Clitoria ternatea , Cleome viscosa , Datura metel , Dalbergia sisoo, Morus alba, Spheranthus indicus L. 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 plants .The extracts from varies parts of plants were assessed in an effort to validate the medicinal potential of the herb. Our results showed plant extracts have significant levels of antimicrobial, enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants.
