Medicinal value of Barleria cristata is known traditionally in India. In the present study preliminary phytochemical screening, quantitative determination of secondary metabolites, vitamin content and in vitro antioxidant activity were carried out. Phytochemical screening revealed the presence of Phyto-chemicals such as alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, saponins, phenols and tannins in ethanol and aqueous extracts of Barleria cristata. The 50% ethanolic extract of leaves showed significant antioxidant activity which is due to the occurrence of secondary metabolites that can be used as antioxidant agents in future.
