ABSTRACT
Terminalia catappa L. is a common tree but its fruits are eaten only by birds, children and is not available in the shops like ordinary, common fruits. This means Terminalia catappa fruits are underutilized. Hence, preliminary study was performed to know better about the phytochemicals, secondary metabolites and antioxidant activities of fruit flesh. The observed phytochemical results show that it contains alkaloid, flavonoid, saponin, anthroquinone, glycoside. In addition to these phytochemicals qualitatively tested, it also found to contain phenolics and flavonoids when tested quantitatively. The results of invitro antioxidant studies assessed shows, which it is able to have higher reducing power, nitric oxide scavenging, total antioxidant activity but metal chelating activity was moderate with Terminalia catappa fruit flesh. Since, Terminalia catappa fruit flesh possess phytochemicals with good antioxidant activity, it can be utilized by everyone like all fruits as it finds enormous pharmaceutical applications. Let's be aware of commonly available fruits and its values to preserve our nature.
