Lablab purpureus is a major staple food crop, widely distributed to many tropical and subtropical countries. The wild forms of lablab are originated in India or south-East Asia, and it introduced in to Africa from Southeast Asia during eighth century.[R.1]

The present study was to investigate the antioxidant activity of lablab purpureus. The ethanolic extract of seed bean where screened for their enzymatic and nonenzymatic antioxidant activity. The level of enzymatic antioxidant is Glutathione peroxide (GPX), Catalase (CAT), Superoxide dismutase (SOD), Glucose -6-Posphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) and Glucose-S-Trasferase (GST) was found. Lablab purpureus good and commendable store of nonenzymatic antioxidants namely reduced glutathione (GSH), Vitamin E and Vitamin C as this increase antioxidant potential of Lablab purpureus. Which provided the antioxidants need in the diet and so Lablab purpureus accomplish high value nutritive and natural store of antioxidants.
