Brassica oleracea and Moringa oleifera are two tropical plants of medicinal properties. The current study aims at investigating inhibitory action of plant extract of Brassica oleracea and Moringa oleifera on dietary enzymes (lipase and α amylase) as well as assessing the toxicity profile of the extracts. In this study phytochemical constituents, total polyphenol and total flavonoid content, free radical scavenging, inhibitory activity, toxicity profile of the plant in animal cell line model was determined. However, Phenolic extracts from the leaves inhibited α-amylase and lipase in a concentration dependant manner. So, this study offers the effect of using Brassica oleracea and Moringa oleifera leaves have potential functional properties on dietary enzymes and estimated the cytotoxicity in KU812 cell.
