Abstract: The nature has provided abundant plant wealth for all the living creatures, which possess medicinal virtues. Hence, the present study aims to open new avenues for the improvement of medicinal uses of Couroupita guianensis flower for the selected area for in vitro anti-inflammatory activity was evaluated using human red blood cell membrane stabilization. Diclofenac sodium was used as a standard standard drug. The percentage of membrane stabilization for CGEF (Couroupita guianensis thanolic flower) extract, CGMF (Couroupita guianensis methanolic flower) extract and diclofenac sodium were done at different concentrations. The maximum membrane stabilization of CGMF extract was found to be 70.58±7.1 at a dose of 500µg/ml compared with CGEF extract and standard drug.
