Abstract :

Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. (Nymphaeaceae) also known as sacred lotus is a large aquatic herb with stout, creeping rhizome found throughout India. Nelumbo nucifera is a native of China, Japan and possibly India. Nelumbo nucifera is reported to posses’ antidiarrhoeal, psychopharmacological, diuretic, antipyretic, antimicrobial, hypoglycemic properties. Mangoes (Mangifera indica) belong to genus Mangifera and family Anacardiaceae. Mango possesses anti-diabetic, antioxidant, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory properties. Various effects like antibacterial, anti-fungal, anthelmintic, anti- parasitic, anticancer, anti HIV, anti bone resorption, antispasmodic, antipyretic, antidiarrheal, immunomodulation, hypolipidemic, antimicrobial, hepatoprotective, gastro protective have also been studied by different scholars and scientists. This paper evaluates the comparative study of Magnifera indica and Nelumbo nucifera plant extract. The yields were found to be (6.34% w/w & 7.69 % w/w) of hydroalcoholic extract Nelumbo nucifera & Mangifera indica leaves respectively. The results of phytochemical revels that the all polar and Methanolic and aqueous soluble compound was found to be present in Nelumbo nucifea extract. Antioxidant activity of the samples was calculated through DPPH assay. % inhibition was calculated as an indicative of antioxidant potency. The higher the % inhibition the better the activity.
Key Words: Herbal Plants, Magnifera indica, Nelumbo nucifera, anti-oxidants, Hydroalcoholic
