Abstract

The present study design to evaluate the ferric reducing antioxidant power of seed and tuber of Nymphaea nauchali Burm. f. in two different solvent (Ethanol and chloroform). Ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) is used to measure the antioxidant capacity of the plants. The result showed that both the part have good ferric reducing antioxidant power in the two solvent extract. The ethanolic extract showed the maximum FRAP activity for seed and tuber and it is 0.238 for seed and 0.145 for tuber at the same concentration 10mg/ml.
