Free Radical Scavenging Activity of Seeds of Trigonella foenum-graecum Linn.
The free radical scavenging potential of the seed of Trigonella foenum-graecum was studied by using different antioxidant models of screening. The ethanolic extract at 500 μg/ml showed maximum scavenging of the radical cation, 2,2-azinobis-(3- ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonate) (ABTS) observed upto 97.56%; It also scavenged stable radical 1,1-diphenyl,2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH) (88.12 %) and nitric oxide radical (72.86 %) at the same concentration.
