Table 1 Total phenolic content and Oxygen radical absorbance capacity of MMMC

From: Synergistic gastroprotective activity of methanolic extract of a mixture of Melastoma malabathricum and Muntingia calabura leaves in rats

Sample Extract (Ratio) Concentration (μg/ml) Total phenolic content (TPC) mg/100 g GAE ORAC (μM TE/100 mg)
Control    Gallic acid (GAE) standard curve Trolox standard curve
MMMC 1:1 200 379.0 ± 5.13 30,256 ± 2700
1:3 200 279.3 ± 3.28 22,881 ± 3100
3:1 200 279.3 ± 1.20 11,957 ± 1100
  1. All values are expressed as mean ± SEM
  2. TPC 1. TPC value of > 1000 mg GAE/100 g is considered as having high total phenolic content
  3. TPC 2. TPC expressed as miligram equivalent to gallic acid per 100 g of dry weight (mg GAE/100 g)
  4. ORAC: ORAC value expressed as μM Trolox Equivalent (TE)/100 g, are mean values from triplicate wells in duplicate Experiments, with SEM < 20%
