The study was aimed to evaluate the antioxidant activity of ethanolic leaf extract of Ficus racemosa Linnbelongs to the family Moraceae. In the presents study antioxidant potential of extract was carried out by free radical scavenging activity using 2, 2 diphenyl 1-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH), reducing power assay and phosphomolybdenum assay. Gallic acid was used as a reference standard. The ethanolic leaf extract of Ficus racemosaexhibited significant antioxidant activity in all three established methods. Results obtained in the present study reveal ethanolic leaf extract of Ficus racemosapossess significant antioxidant activity
