ABSTRACT

Oxidative stress reflects an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage. Oxidative stress plays a major role in the development of chronic and degenerative diseases such as cancer, arthritis, aging, autoimmune disorders, and cardiovascular and neuro degenerative diseases. However in plants and animals, these free radicals are deactivated by antioxidants. This study was designed to invstigate the presents of antioxidant components (phenol, flavonoid, vitamin C, beta carotene and lycopene) and in vitro antioxidant activities (DPPH,FRAP and Nitric oxide) of methanol extracts of plants. A.bonnie and A.vogelli were used for this study. The results showed that the methanol extracts ofA.vogelli and A.boimie possess high content of antioxidant even at lower concentration especially phenol 1(312 ± 5.10 and 282.2 ± 3.92mg/g) and flavonoid (1068.54 ± 25 and 414.58±2.30mg/100g) respectively. Antioxidant constituent of these extracts enables them act as scavengers and convert the radicals to less reactive. However, this finding suggest that since these methanol extracts otA.bommie and A.vogelli possess high antioxidant components that can scavenge free radicals and reactive oxygen species, thus, they can be used in pharmaceutical and food industries in production ofdrugs and as a suppliment forthe treatment and prevention ofdiseases such as cancer, asthma, aging,etc. caused by free radicals.
