Author(s): Rajeev Nema*, Sarita khare

  This article has brought out and highlighted some Medicinal plants that have therapeutic potential due to the presence of natural antioxidants functioning as reducing agents, free radical scavengers and quenchers of singlet oxygen.

The antibacterial and antifungal activities of extracts (40, 60, 80,100 %) Zone of inhibition of the extracts were compared with that of standards- Streptomycin for antibacterial activity and Griseofulvin for antifungal activity. The results showed remarkable inhibition of the bacterial and fungal growth against the tested organisms.
