From: Evaluation of antioxidant and cytoprotective activities of Arnica montana L. and Artemisia absinthiumL. ethanolic extracts

Sample Antioxidant activity
DPPH radical scavenging assay activity IC50 (mg/mL) Trolox Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity (μmol Trolox equivalents/g extract) Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (μmol Trolox equivalents/g extract)
A. montana L. extract 0.63 ± 0.07 486.06 ± 20.63 682.22 ± 17.32
A. absinthium L.
extract
0.57 ± 0.05 690.62 ± 13.79 917.89 ± 15.83
