Antioxidant activity of chloroform extract of root parts of Inula racemosa was evaluated by measuring the scavenging activity of the extract on stable 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picryl hydrazyl radical (DPPH) exhibiting an interesting antioxidant profile. The reducing power was determined using a modification of Zou method. Metal chelating activity of the extract was determined at concentrations of 20, 30, 50 and 100 µg/mL, taking citric acid as standard. The extract displayed significant activity.
