The methanol crude extracts of the plant parts of Mimosa pudica (Mimosaceae) was screened was screened in vitro for antioxidant activity using the 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl-hydrate (DPPH) free radical scavenging assay. On the other hand, the methanol crude extract of the aerial part showed moderate antioxidant activity (IC50 20.512 µg/ml) compared to ascorbic acid (IC50 1.143 µg/ml). The overall experimental results suggest the biologically active constituents present in the methanolic extract of Mimosa pudica and justify its use in folkloric remedies.
