The bioactive constituents from many plants are used as therapeutic agents against many physiological conditions. C. sinensis plant has many phyto-constituents like flavonoids, alkaloid and sterols. The present study appraised the hepatoprotective activity of methanolic extract of Camellia sinensis leaves against paracetamol-induced liver damage. Present activity was studied by assessing biochemical parameters such as alanine amino transferase (ALT), aspartate amino transferase (AST), bilirubin in serum. The results indicates that the extract was showed marked reduction in the level of marker enzymes and proves that C. sinensis having potent hepatoprotective activity.
