In the present study evaluation of Memecylon lushingtoni fruit pulp (M.l.Fr.) Aqueous extract has been quantified for antioxidant activity. Total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC) was evaluated and tested for its antiradical scavenging activity by DPPH and ABTS assays using standard photometric methods. M.l.Fr. exhibited prominent values for TPC, TFC and in-vitro radical scavenging activity. Our findings concluded that ripe fruits of Memecylon lushingtoni contain an appreciable amount of high valued therapeutic compounds and could act as a potential source of natural antioxidants
