	  abstract     = {Hot aqueous and methanol extracts of the two selected
herbal medicines such are Vellarugu chooranam (V.C) and
Amukkirai Chooranam (A.C) were examined for total phenolic and
flavonoid contents and in vitro antioxidant activity using four
different methods. The total phenolic and flavonoid contents in
methanol extract of V.C were found to be higher (44.41±1.26mg
GAE/g; 174.44±9.32mg QE/g) than in the methanol extract of A.C
(20.56±0.67mg GAE/g; 7.21±0.85mg QE/g). Hot methanol and
aqueous extracts of both medicines showed low antioxidant activity
in DPPH, ABTS, and FRAP methods and Iron chelating activity not
found at highest possible concentration. V.C contains higher
concentrations of total phenolic and flavonoid contents than A.C and
can also exert greater antioxidant activity than A.C, although the
activities demonstrated were lower than the positive control Trolox.
The in vitro antioxidant activity was not related with the total
phenolic and flavonoid contents of the methanol and aqueous extracts
of both herbal medicines (A.C and V.C).
