Abstract:

Cow plays a vital role in the socio-economic structure of rural India and cow urine is known for its medicinal values traditionally. Even though there are various reports on cow urine composition, there exist a lacunae on the antioxidant nature of Punganur cattle urine. Studies on oxidative stress and antioxidant nature of urine helps to establish the redox status and health status of Punganur cows at different physiological stages. Hence a study was carried out on thirty (30) Punganur cows (10 each) at different physiological stages viz, heifers, lactating and dry cows present at Livestock research station, Palamaner, Chittor district, Andhra Pradesh. In urine samples, oxidative stress, Total Antioxidant Capacity and free radical scavenging activity were evaluated. The results showed lower levels of MDA, higher values of TAC and free radical scavenging activities (superoxide, hydroxyl, nitric oxide and DPPH radicals)in urine of heifers which in turn reflects its more antioxidant potential. It was evident that free radical scavenging activity and reducing power were correlated with the TAC, hence single assay of TAC may be recommended to assess the antioxidant status of cow urine.
