Antioxidant properties of plants are well established. Hence this study aims to evaluate the various enzymic antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase(SOD), Catalase (CAT), Peroxidase(POD), Polyphenol oxidase(PPO), Glutathione-S transferase (GST), Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) and Glutathione reductase (GR) in the methanolic extracts of Syzygium cumini and Momordica charantia seed, leaf, seed mix and leaves mix samples.. The seed extract of Syzygium cumini showed the maximum activity of catalase, superoxide dismutase, polyphenol oxidase, Glutathione-S-transferase, Glutathione reductase and registered lowest value in the peroxidase activity. The leaves mixture showed the maximum activity for polyphenol oxidase. Glutathione reductase activity was formed to be highest in the methanolic extract of Momordica charantia leaf.
