Amaranthus is commonly consumed green leafy vegetable in India. It is bushy perennial herb available throughout the year in India. Animal experiments and human studies have shown that, it is an effective hypoglycemic and hypocholesterolaemic agent. Amaranthus leaves rich in carbohydrates, proteins and vitamin A, vit K and vit C. It also contains minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous. It reduces bad cholesterol and anemia. In the current study, we evaluated the water, methanol, and chloroform and hexane extract of Amaranthus in-terms of their antioxidant activity in-vitro models. Ours studies proved that, compared to all the other extracts, methanol and water extracts showed more activity. Among these two extracts, water extract possess highest antioxidant activity in all the model systems. Lipid peroxidation activity of the was 75 and 66% in both linoleic and RBC membrane model system. Both the extracts were capable of scavenging peroxy and superoxide, hydroxylradicals and possessed strong reducing powers and ferrous iron chelating capabilities and their activity is comparable with that of standard antioxidants BHA and &
