ABSTRACT

This study evaluated the nutritional profile and antioxidant activities of Chromolaela odorata and Tridax procumbens leaf and stembark extract. A total of One hundred and twenty(120),8-weeks old male albino wistar rats(220g and 229g bw) were divided into different groups(control and treatment groups),10g of pulverized plant extracts were homogenized in distilled water. The samples of the plant extract were soaked in ethanol and aqueous solvents. The percentage proximate composition of the moisture content, total ash, crude protein, total carbohydrate and crude fat were determined in all the plant extracts,and there was no significant different (p˂0.05).Also the mineral compositions such as Calcium (Ca), Sodium(Na), Potassium(K), Phosphorus(P), Iron (Fe), Magnesium(Mg) and Zinc (Zn) of both the plant extracts were evaluated in (mg/kg). Moreso, the Vitamins B1(Thiamine), B2(Riboflavin), B3 (Niaci n), B6(Pyridoxine), C (Ascorbic acid), Biotin, Folic acid (Water Soluble) and Vit. A,D,E and K (Fat Soluble) in Mg/100g of C odorata and T.procumbens extract were analysed, (P˂0.05) The antioxidant activities for aqueous and ethanolic extracts where compared with the ascorbic acid which shows no significant different (P˂0.05) ranging from (10-400µg/ml) concentrations.
