Eudistoma viride is a colonial ascidian belonging to the family polycitoridae and it is available in all over India. This study is designed to examine the invitro antioxidant activity of Eudistoma viride by DPPH method with different extracts. In DPPH system, the strongest radical scavenging activity was exhibited by the ethanolic extract of Eudistoma when compared to standard drug ascorbic acid. An increase in dose have significantly increased the absorbance of antioxidant activity. This result reveal that Eudistoma viride of ethanolic extract a promising antioxidant potential against free radical induced oxidative damage.
Keywords: Colonial ascidian, Eudistoma viride, antioxidant activity.
