Fruits of Terminalia catappa contains number of hydrolysable tannins also contain flavonoids. Different concentrations of the aqueous extract of Terminalia catappa fruits flesh extract have been evaluated for their analgesic as well as HRBC membrane stabilization activity. The percent inhibition was found 52.16 (80mg/ml) of test sample which is comparable to the percent inhibition of 64.85 (Table 1)for standard Aspirin (100 mg/ml) Also, high concentration (1000 µg/ml) of the fruit flesh extract was found to stabilize the HRBC membrane up to 65.37% (Table 2), which is comparable to the activity of the standard analgesic Aspirin (76.86%).
