Trigonella foenum graecum commonly known as fenugreek (Menthikura) is a traditional Indian medicinal plant of the Fabiaceae family. It is commonly used as traditional food and medicine. The plant has been found to be possessing pharmacological activities such as antioxidants and antidiabetic. The present investigation undertaken to perform phytochemical screening and antioxidant activity of leaf, stem and seeds of various extract of T. foenum graecum by using ethanol as solvent. The antioxidant activity of ethanolic extracts was performed by using Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) scavenging method. All the extracts showed significant results compared with standard drug ascorbic acid. The preliminary phytochemical screening of ethanolic extracts of T. foenum graecum showed the presence of primary and secondary metabolites. This study describes the phytochemical investigation and antioxidant activity of T. foenum graecum. The results obtained in the present study clearly indicate that the ethanolic seed extract of T. foenum graecum having potent phytochemicals, antioxidant action than leaf and stem.
