Abstract

Taxillus tomentosus (Roth.) Van Tiegh., a stem parasite belonging to the family Loranthaceae growing on Emblica officinalis Gaertn. was collected from Western Ghats of Karnataka. In the present study, an investigation was carried out on phytoconstituents in petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts which revealed the presence of reducing compounds, alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, cardiac glycosides, glycosides, carbohydrates, sterols and terpenoids and absence of anthraquinones, proteins and amino acids. The methanolic extract of the plant showed total phenolic content of about 31ìg of GAE in 100 ìg of extract. Antioxidant and reducing power activities of methanol extract revealed dose dependent activity, which increased with increase in the concentration of the extract.
