Abstract

ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF SENECIO CHRYSANTHEMOIDES EXTRACTS

Darshan Singh*, S. C. Sati and Maneesha D. Sati

ABSTRACT

The genus Senecio (Asteraceae) is one of the richest in species among the Angiosperms, with more than 1500 species distributed worldwide in cold and tropical regions.[1] Many species of the genus Senecio have reportedly been used by Andean people in Chile as traditional remedies for mountain sickness. Several of these species are known by the vernacular name “chachakoma” but Villagran et al., pointed out that given the same name to widely different species of the genus Senecio is basically wrong and misleading.[2] In traditional medicine, the use of Senecio species for treatment of asthma, coughs, bronchitis, eczema and wound healing have been reported.[3-5] Previous works on the chemical composition of the essential oils of some Senecio included Senecio trapezuntinus Boiss., Senecio platyphyllus DC. var. platyphyllus, S. vernalis Waldst. & Kit., S. glaucus subsp. coronopifloius, S. leucostachys Baker., Senecio squalidus L., Senecio aegyptius var. discoideus Boiss., Senecio graveolens Wedd., Senecio farfarifolius Boiss., Senecio nutans Sch.-Bip., and Senecio longipenicillatus Sch.-Bip.[6] S. chrysanthemoides DC (Asteraceae) is a deciduous shrub found in north-west Himalayas (India).[7] The traditional claim associated with Senecio species and lack of scientific studies regarding antioxidant potential of S. chrysanthemoides prompted us to perform this study. The objective of the present study was to evaluate antioxidant potential of S. chrysanthemoides extracts. The present paper for the first time reports antioxidant activity of S. chrysanthemoides collected from north west Himalayas, India.
