Abstract

Bacopa monnieri has been long used in Indian traditional medicine to treat cognitive disorders and for memory enhancement. Current study was aimed at exploring the antioxidant potential of ethanolic and methanolic leaf extracts of Bacopa monnieri by utilizing in vitro methods. This was achieved by performing catalase, peroxidase, and DPPH assays and also by the determination of total phenolic content. It was found that the methanolic extract of the leaves possessed significantly higher antioxidant levels in comparison to the ethanolic extract. This would help explain the known medicinal properties of Bacopa monnieri in diseases involving oxidative stress. It also shows that methanol is a better solvent than ethanol for extraction of the active components of Bacopa monnieri
