Antioxidants serve a critical function in preventing cell injury caused by ROS by scavenging free radicals. Plant-derived antioxidants protect cells by scavenging free oxygen radicals and balancing reactive oxygen species (ROS). This is due to the presence of bioactive components in plants, such as phenolic compounds, flavonoids, and essential oils, which provide antioxidant action.The main objective of this study is to evaluate the antioxidant activity of methanol extract of aerial part of Xanthium strumarium L. The methanol extract of the aerial part of plant was subjected to preliminary phytochemical analysis. Free radical scavenging activity of the methanolic extract at different concentration was determined with 1, 1-diphenyl-2 picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay. The goal of current study is to uncover naturally occurring antioxidants from plants. The current study focuses on phytochemical screening and in-vitro antioxidant activity evaluation of methanol extract of areal parts of Xanthium strumarium.
