Abstract

An attempt was made in the present studies, to arrive at some convincing correlation between the anti oxidant and wound healing potential of methanol extracts of Eclipta alba (ME), and Centella asiatica (MC), individually, and in presence of methanol extract of Piper nigrum (MP), as Eclipta alba and Piper nigrum (ME + MP), Centella asiatica and Piper nigrum (MC + MP), and in combination of Eclipta alba, Centella asiatica and Piper nigrum (ME + MC + MP) using albino rats. The significant results have justified the traditional use of these plants. The combinations of methanol extract of Piper nigrum significantly enhanced both anti-oxidant and wound healing potential of the test extracts suggesting its role as bio activity enhancer.
