Abstract:
Successive methanolic and direct ethanolic extracts of Trigonella foenum-graecum and T. corniculata seeds were prepared and were investigated for their potential antioxidant activity against DPPH (2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) free radicals. Seed extracts of T. corniculata showed better antioxidant activity than that of T. foenum-graecum. Ethanolic extract of T. corniculata was the most effective antioxidant among the extracts with 90.24% DPPH radical scavenging activity at 500 μg mL-1. The antioxidant activity of the extracts increased with the increasing amount of the concentration. It was concluded that the seeds of T. corniculata had better antioxidant than T. foenum-graecum. Moreover the ethanolic extracts showed significantly better activity than the successive methanolic extracts.
