Abstract

In the present study, aqueous extract of Avicennia officinalis was screened for lipid peroxidation inhibitory and anti-arthritic activities using standard in vitro procedures. It exhibited important free radical-scavenging activity towards the lipid peroxidation and DPPH radicals. A. officinalis also revealed moderate anti-arthritic activity. Folin-Ciocalteu reagent in terms of gallic acid equivalent achieved the total phenolic content which may be responsible for these activities.
