Comparative in vitro evaluation of lipophilic oxygen radical absorbance capacity of Standardized Curcuma longa extract vs standardized FMB CurcuZn extract

Author(s): Dr. Vijay Gokarn and Dr. Sanjay Tamoli
Abstract: Curcumin from commonly known Turmeric (Curcuma longa) rhizome extract is well recognized as an anti-oxidant and reported to have free radicals scavenging activity. The present research work is focused on comparative study of evaluating antioxidant activity of FMB CurcuZn extract powder (Standardized extract powder of Curcuma longa for Curcuminoid 95% & elemental Zinc NLT 1000ppm) vs Curcuma longa extract (95% Curcuminoid). Curcumin being a lipid or fat soluble molecule Lipophilic Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity assay was selected as a tool for establishing the antioxidant potentials between the two samples viz., FMB CurcuZn extract powder vs Standardized Curcuma longa extract (95% Curcuminoid). Based on the results of the Invitro assay it was concluded that FMB CurcuZn extract powder was having better antioxidant activity than the conventional Curcuma longa extract.
