Bioactivity Study of Barringtonia asiatica (Linnaeus) Kurz. Seed Aqueous Extract in Artemia salina
Elmer-Rico E. Mojica and Jose Rene L. Micor

Abstract:
The aim of this study is to look at the biological activity of the seeds of Barringtonia asiatica. The water crude extract of botong seeds was tested for its biological activity using the brine shrimp hatchability and lethality assay. Results showed high biological activity of the extract in both assays. The LC50 obtained was better than the positive control used. It is possible that botong seeds contain compounds with potential biological activity that can be used to treat cancer or tumor. Phytochemical tests showed the presence of terpenoids and saponins in the crude extract.
