Total polyphenol content and antioxidants capacity of three Africans antipyretic plants
Introduction: Ceiba P. Crossopteryx F. Pseudocedrela K. are used as a nutritional and medicinal (Antipyretic). The aim of this study was to perform the dosage of polyphenol content and their antioxidants capacity.
Methods: Aqueous extracts of three plants leaves were used to determine polyphenol content using Folin-Ciocalteu and antioxidants activities by DPPH radical scavenging and FRAP Methods.
Results: We found much more total phenol content in the leaves of Pseudocedrela K. respectively (352.57 mg/g). Antioxidants activities of pseudocedrela (279.9 mMol eq Trolox) by the Frap method was better than these others plants. (Trolox; R2= 0.9968). The IC50 = 12.1 µg/mL of leaves of pseudocedrela K. was inferior to two others plants (Ceiba and crossopteryx). That means that aqueous extract of Pseudocedrela have more antioxidants activity than Ceiba and crossopteryx, but fewer than ascorbic acid.
Conclusion: The total polyphenol and others compounds in the leaves of Pseudocedrela may be used as natural antioxidants to prevent lead to oxidative stress lead.
