Teena Agrawal, Purendra Singh, Banasthali


Free radicals are the major problems of the world today. They are formed endogenously as well as exogenously by different kinds of metabolic processes in the body. Some of them are highly toxic process causing considerable damage to the system and produce several kindsof disorders. Antioxidants are the substance which reduces the formation of free radicals inthe body and are responsible for degradation of free radical and reactive oxygen species (ROS) in many ways. There are several plant drugs which are helpful in the formation of antioxidants in the plants parts. They reduce the formation of free radicals in the body and form the ROS formation stoppages. In this research article we worked on Albizia siris of leguminosae family. The tree is very valuable from medicines point of view and in the Ayurveda several drugs have been formulated from several parts of the plants. Here we assessed the antioxidants potential of several parts of the tree with special reference to the roots, stem leaves, flower, seed, pods in several solvents mixtures and tried to find out the potential by the appropriate protocols. We found significant results of the antioxidants potential and by further in vivo and in vitro methods of work we can conclude the tree to be a wonderful drug as the source of antioxidants.
