RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Currently using synthetic drugs are well recognized to protect from gout and oxidative stress although have their adverse effects. Therefore, the consumption of natural antioxidants through plants, food or dietary supplements in day to day life could be acts as a protective measure for such diseases. The enzyme XO catalyzes and reduces conversion of O 2 , leads to production of H 2 O 2 and superoxide anion radicals, as well as OH radicals 7 . The mechanism of oxidative damage leads to develop gout. In the current study, we performed the xanthine oxidase inhibition by choosing the ethanolic extract of Embilica officinalis (EOEt).
