In late year, the interest of plant-based medication, wellbeing items, drug, food supplements, neutraceuticals, cosmetic items, and so forth are expanding in both creating and created nations. Since plants contain antioxidant of natural origin like polyphenols, flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamin A, E and C. These antioxidants help to adjust chronic illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular sicknesses, maturing, malignant growth and neurological infections. The free radicals are liable for the event of these infections. An enormous number of traditional plants are accessible with solid antioxidant profile, which can overcome such sicknesses that caused because of free extremists. Parthenium hysterophorus is one such conventional plants, which have cell reinforcement property and oversee different infections. It is a rich source of number of phytopharmaceuticals particularly phenolic mixes and flavonoids. Different samples of Parthenium hysterophorus aerial parts were arranged progressively arranged by expanding polarity using standard extraction strategies. Fundamental phytochemical screening indicated presence of bioactive classes of natural compounds such as triterpenoids, phenolic mixes and flavonoids in chloroform and methanol extracts of plant. The methanol extract of plant aerial parts exhibited maximum antioxidant activity with IC50 value of 76.07 µg/ml, where as standard rutin showed IC50 value 4.93 µg/m. The chloroform extract showed mild antioxidant activity with IC50 value of 318.72 µg/ml. The bioactive methanol extract have shown presence of phenolic and flavonoid compounds, which have been reported to possess strong antioxidant activity.
