Abstract: <i style="">G.gynandra</i> extract was found to potentially diminish the rate of lipid peroxidation, with a significant increase in the levels of enzymatic (superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase) and non-enzymatic (reduced glutathione vitamins E and C, and uric acid) antioxidants, which were found, altered during aflatoxin B<sub>1</sub> (AFB<sub>1</sub>) injection. The result confirmed that <i style="">G.gynandra</i> extract exerts its chemopreventive efficacy by preventing the rate of lipid peroxidation and influenced the enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants in AFB<sub>1</sub> induced male albino rats.
