Baliospermum montanum (Willd.) Muell. is used in India for reducing oxidative stress. The main objective of the study was to investigate phytochemical and antioxidant activities to justify the use of this plant in medicines. Antioxidant activity of different concentrations of methanolic leaf extract was evaluated with the determination of total phenolic, DPPH* radical scavenging assay, and ABTS+ decolouration assay. The total phenolic content was higher in this extract. The antioxidant potential of the extract was well established with DPPH*, which provide a basis for the traditional use of this plant in medicines.
