Comparative Phytochemical investigation and Antioxidant study of Narcicuss tazetta, Nymphaea mexicana zucc. And Indigofera heterantha.
The study was intended to investigate the presence of phytoconstituents in the bulbs of Narcicuss tazetta, flowers of the plant Nymphaea mexicana, and roots of Indigofera heterantha. The present study provides evidence that methanolic extracts of Narcicuss tazetta, Nymphaea mexicana and Indigofera heterantha contain important compounds with marked bioactivity. Maximum phenolic content was observed in Nymphaea mexicana and maximum flavonoid content was observed in extract of Indigofera heterantha.
Keywords: Phytoconstituents, Antioxidant, Nymphaea mexicana, Narcicuss tazetta, Indigofera heterantha
