Abstract: Shivanar VembuKuzhi Thailam (SVKT) is a poly herbal sidhha drug used for the skin care ailments. The aim of the current study is to evaluate the antioxidant potential of SVKT in the cell free systems. The antioxidant radical scavenging effect of SVKT was evaluated against the free radicals like DPPH radical, superoxide radical, hydroxyl radical, nitric oxide radical, non-enzymatic glycosylation of hemoglobin. The total phenols and the flavonoids were quantified in SVKT. From the results, it can be concluded that, the SVKT exerts the excellent antioxidant potential due to the presence of the polyphenols and flavonoinds.
