The petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol leaves extracts of Macrosolen parasiticus (Loranthaceae), a parasitic shrub growing on Mangifera indica were investigated for their phytochemical constituents, total phenolic content and antioxidant activities. Phytochemical screening of petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, phenolic compounds, sterols, terpenoids, glycosides, cardiac glycosides, carbohydrates, fixed oils and fats. Total phenolic content of petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol leaves extracts of the plant were 18, 22, 32 and 37 µg of gallic acid equivalent in 100 µg of plant extract respectively. All the extracts showed promising antioxidant activity.
