“…Guava leaf extract was successful in scavenging DPPH* with 47.87% and 43.36% activity against *OH species. This might be due to the presence of compounds like quercetin, myricetin (phenolic compounds) etc., which are known for their therapeutic value with rich antioxidant properties (Chiari-Andreo et al 2017 ). Diaz-de-Cerio et al ( 2016 ) has confirmed the same by screening compounds using HPLC as well as elaborated their beneficial effects on various chronic diseases.…”

“…Cold extraction was performed using 100ml of ethanol for 10grams of the powdered leaf sample by providing a gentle shake continuously for around 24hours. This process was repeated for five batches and the extracts were collected, filtered using Whatman grade 1 (11m) and stored in brown bottles for further experiments (Chiari-Andréo et al, 2017;Tripathy & pradhan, 2013).…”
