- The objective of this study was carried out in order to evaluate the antioxidative activities of n-hexane fractions from medicinal herbs. Certain parts from 6 species of edible and medicinal herbs were extracted with methanol. Radical scavenging activity of the n-hexane fractions against DPPH and ABTS radicals were observed to be high in Psoralea corylifolia, and Scutellsria barbata; it also significantly increased (p<0.05). For a comparison of the effect of various concentration of fractions, as the concentration of treatment increased, the antioxidative effects on radical scavenging activity also oncreased; yet it was not significant. The antioxidative effect of medicinal plants was dependent on the concentration but was not significant. Therefore, these results indicate that edible wild plants, such as Psoralea corylifolia, and Scutellsria barbata may be useful as potential antioxidant sources for improving the human antioxidant defense system against disease. ?
