Abstract: The levels of malondialdehyde and lipofuscin pigments were increased in the prostate of D-galactose (0.5 ml/day, sc, for 20 days) induced aging mice. After <i style="">B. monniera</i> (40 mg/kg body weight for 20 days) ethanol leaf extract administration levels of both the parameters were reduced significantly. The results suggest that <i style="">B. monniera </i>prevents formation of malondialdehyde and lipofuscin pigments which are the indicators of aging.
