Description <div style="text-align: justify">The antioxidant properties of three wild edible tuberous plants viz. Brachystelma edulis Coll. and Helmls, Ceropegia bulbosa var. bulbosa Roxb. and Ceropegia hirsuta Weight and Arn. were determined by using polyphenols, ascorbic acid, carotenoid, enzyme peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase assay. The total phenol content varied from 448.1&plusmn;0.81 mg/100g FW (Leaves) to 131.4&plusmn;0.86g/100g FW (Tuber) of C. bulbosa. &nbsp;Among all these tubers, B. edulis showed the highest antioxidant capacity. The result indicates that could be utilized as potential source of natural antioxidant in the food or in pharmaceutical industry.</div>
