Abstract

The present study was designed to evaluate the antioxidantof methanolic extract
of Law's Ceropegia leaves and flowers using in vitro approaches and anti-inflammatory
activity.Tannins, Saponins, Triterpenes, Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Steroids, Anthraquinones,
Sterols phytochemicals present in the leaves extract and Tannins, Saponins, Triterpenes,
Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Steroids, Anthraquinones, Sterols and Reducing Sugar present in
flower extract of Law's Ceropegia plant.CCl4 has shown better performance as the
concentration increased 0.05 to 0.3 mg/ml as well as it shown better antioxidant activity in
both leaves and flower extract. The ethanol extracts have better anti-inflammatory activity
for both leaves and flower than petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and n-butanol
extract in both leaves and flowers of Law's Ceropegia plant.
