Abstract

Objective: Ipomoea staphylina Roem & Schult. plant ethanolic extract were subjected to Antioxidant, cytotoxic and nutritive experiment by using standard method. Materials and Methods: Ethanolic extract of I. staphylina was investigated for antioxidant experiment by  using DPPH, ABTS, superoxide radical scavenging, Hydroxy radical scavenging, Metal chelating assays. Cytotoxic experiment is done by trypan blue exclusion test using DLA and EAC cancer cells. Nutritive value is performed by double acid digestion followed by Atomic absorption spectroscopy. Results: Antioxidant experiment revealed that I. staphylina plant ethanolic extract has excellent antioxidant activity in all tested experiments but comparably less with the standards used. I. staphylina plant ethanolic extract has negligible toxicity compared to the standard curcumin used. From nutritive value experiment it is revealed that I. staphylina plant has high iron content with rich macro and micronutrients. Conclusion: I. staphylina plant could be exploited as a valuable source of antioxidant agent enriching with nutrients. 

Keywords: Ipomoea staphylina Roem & Schult., antioxidant activity, cytotoxic activity, nutritive properties
