The present study was designed to examine in-vitro antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of Cinnamon bark and Ajwain seed extract by using well diffusion method and DPPH scavenging activity, respectively. It was determined that both Cinnamon and Ajwain possess considerable antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Salmonella typhi and Escherichia coli. In terms of DPPH activity, Cinnamon showed higher antioxidant power as compared to Ajwain. These findings suggested the potential use of Cinnamon and Ajwain as phytogenic growth promoter in feed industry which can be further explored for better production.

Keywords: Ajwain, Antioxidant, Antimicrobial, Cinnamon
