Description Hepatic disease is a public health problem because of the devastation it causes to people. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the antioxidant activity of a plant, such as Lophira lanceolata, commonly used in the treatment of liver diseases in Benin. Phytochemical screening of aqueous and ethanolic extracts according to traditional use revealed the presence of alkaloids, polyphenols, flavonoids, tannins, saponosids, anthocyanins, free anthracene derivated, leuco-anthocyanins, quinone derivated and reducing compounds. Chemical analysis dosage of phenolic compounds has shown that the ethanolic extract of Lophira lanceolata’s leaves was rich in total polyphenols, flavonoids, tannins and anthocyanins than the aqueous extract. The evaluation of the antioxidant activities by the DPPH and the ferric Reduction antioxydant power (FRAP) tests showed that the ethanolic extract of Lophira lanceolata’s leaves is more active than the aqueous extract. The larval toxicity test on Artemia salina indicate that the aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Lophira lanceolata are practically non-toxic. That can justify its use to the treatment of liver diseases by populations in Benin.
