Abstract: The present study was undertaken in order to study the antioxidant properties of leaf of three medicinal plants viz. Artocarpus heterophyllus, Terminalia bellerica and Carica papaya. Methanol was used as organic solvent for extraction. The antioxidant activity was determined by DPPH free radical scavenging assay, superoxide scavenging assay, reductive ability, nitric oxide free radical scavenging assay, hydroxyl radical scavenging assay, vitamin C and vitamin E determination. The present study revealed that all the three medicinal plants have a good free radical scavenging activity and thereby act as potent antioxidant. Extract of Artocarpus heterophyllus, Terminalia bellerica and Carica papaya could be useful for preparation of neutraceuticals as potent antioxidant to treat various diseases and its complications.
