Abstract: Bambusa vulgaris Schrad. ex J. C. Wendl. var. vittata Riviere & C. Riviere (BVV) leaves are consumed as food and have antimicrobial activity. Positive health effect of its consumption is attributed to the bioactive substances. In the present study, the influence of BVV antioxidants on oxidative stress that can be used as an alternative option has been studied. The total phenol and flavonoids content in the aqueous and acetone extract were determined by calorimetric assay, as well as their antioxidant activity through various chemical assays like, DPPH radical, Hydrogen peroxide scavenging and reducing power assay. Both the aqueous and acetone extracts displayed their antioxidantactivity in a dose dependent manner by scavenging hydrogen peroxide and DPPH radical. The total phenolic and total flavonoids compounds in both aqueous and acetone extract were 345.910.071 and 325.630.051 mg GAE/g of dry extract and 289.20.05 and 179.20.002 mg quercetin/g of dry extract, respectively. This may be the first report to provide evidence that the crude aqueous and acetone extract of Bambusa vulgaris var. vittata leaf is a potential source of natural antioxidants.
