The study aimed to evaluate the hepatic antioxidant capacity of embelin (from Embelia ribes) using different antioxidant tests, free radical scavenging activity and lipid peroxidation in albino rats. Carbon tetrachloride (CCl(4)) treatment to rats has been more susceptible to peroxidative damage through production of reactive metabolites, namely trichloromethyl-free radicals ( and/or ) as measured by thiobarbituric acid reactive species. After the induction of liver damage by CCl(4) intoxication to rats, the concentration of lipid peroxidation was significantly (P
