An extract of the total phenolic content of the leaves showed significant anti-oxidant activity in vitro in a range of guieraa. The principle of the antioxidant activity is the availability of electrons to neutralize any so-called free radical s. The antiplasmodial activity of infusion, decoction and chloroformic extract of stems and leaves of Guiera senegalensis has been demonstrated on two strains of Plasmodium falciparum Benoit et al.
Various chemical constituents are found in the extracts senfgalensis galls of Guiera senegalensis such as tannins, flavonoids, anthocyanidins, alkaloids and steroids Lamien et al.
Polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of fourteen wild edible fruits from Burkina Faso. Retrieved November 6, Copy and print the QR code to a plant label, poster, book, website, magazines, newspaper etc and even t-shirts.
The root extract was less active. It grows in areas with — — mm annual rainfall. A brick red precipitate appearing at the bottom of the test tube indicates the presence of reducing sugars [ 12 ]. A new approach to study medicinal plants with tannins and flavonoids contents from the local knowledge. Recently, a great interest has been given to naturally occurring antioxidants, which may play important roles in inhibiting both free radical s and oxidative chain-reactions within tissues and membranes Nsimba et al.
The antioxidant activity of carotenoids is based on the radical adducts of carotenoids with free radical s from linoleic acid. A aqueous extract from the galls showed significant in vitro antiviral activity against fowlpox virus.
Extract of the leaves of Gs was tested for its antimicrobial activity against Stemphylium solani, Aspergillus flavus, Trichoderma viride, Penicillium Spp. A crude aqueous leaf extract showed moderate central nervous system depressant effects in guinea pigs. Mucilage was also present in all plant parts, but mostly in the guieda.
A crude guierw leaf extract showed significant antitussive activity in tests with guinea pigs. A decoction of all plant parts is drunk and rubbed in to treat oedema and the bark powder is applied as a dressing. The galls of G.
Therefore, the interest in traditional medicinal plants will continue to grow as emerging infectious diseases continue to expand, and the numbers of drug resistant microbes continue to escalate. Total phenols content versus the antioxidant activity: The leaves are known as a?
The content of alkaloids, tannin and saponins found in the senegalesis study agree with tuiera reported by Ref. Biochemica et Biophysica Acta,pp: They are applied to wounds, sores in the mouth, syphilitic chancres and phagadenic ulcers[ ]. Ann Jose ankara escort.

Our new book to be released soon is Edible Shrubs. A methanolic leaf extract showed significant anti-diarrhoeal activity in rodents. Crushed leaves are mixed with tamarind pulp and eaten as a laxative and appetizer. Absorbance readings were then recorded at 20 min intervals until the control sample had changed colour. Since there are thousands of species of fungi present in the environment and at lease a hundred of them are pathogenic [ 9 ], antifungal activity of medicinal plants needs to be addressed.
The low correlation obtained between antioxidant and anti- lipid peroxidation activities suggest that the anti-peroxidation activity from galls of Guiera senegalensis is not related to their radical scavenging and ferric reduction activities. Solvents used were supplied by Fluka Chemie, Buchs Switzerland. Antioxidant activity was calculated using the following equation: The radical-scavenging activities of the extracts and fractions from galls of G.
Table 1 shows the totals phenol, totals flavonoid content in the extracts and fractions from galls of G. Determination of totals phenol, totals flavonoid content in the extracts: This present study showed that Gs leaves extract has no inhibition activity against all of the tested fungal strains. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the phytochemical analysis, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory inhibitory activities from the galls of Guiera Senegalensis.

Anti-diarrhoeal and ulcer-protective effects of the aqueous root extract of Guiera senegalensis in rodents. The XO plays an important role in various ischemic tissues, vascular injuries, inflammatory diseases, chronic heart failure, is a major source of free radical s superoxideits activity contributes significantly to the degree of oxidative stressbrain edema, thermal stress, respiratory syndrome, viral infection and hemorrhagic shock in vivo and it is also associated srnegalensis gout Naoghare et al.
