The interesting things of this plant are each part of Moringa oleifera is used as medicines. The present work has been carried out to evaluate the anti-epileptic activity of fresh fruit juice of Moringa oleifera against maximal electroshock (M.E.S) and Picrotoxin (PTX) induced convulsions in mice at different dose level (100ml/kg. p.o and 50ml/kg. p.o). Diazepam (5mg/kg. p.o) and Phenytoin (25mg/kg. i.p) were used as reference standard drugs. The data obtained indicates that the fresh fruit juice of Moringa oleifera at the dose of (50ml/kg p.o and 100ml/kg p.o) shows anticonvulsant activity against Maximal electroshock and Picrotoxin induced convulsion in mice.
