ABSTRACT

Leptadenia reticulata (Retz) wight & Arn belongs to family Asclepiadaceae is an important medicinal plant comes under “Jeevaniya Dravya Ghana. This herb is used as Rasayana drug and having different potentials against human wellbeing. The aim of the present study was to investigate (a) nutritional values, (b) physico- chemical parameters, (c) phytochemical classes, (d) development of Thin Layer Chromatography and (e) anti-oxidant activity of the leaves and tender stalk of L. reticulata According to the results, 16 61 of total ash, 2.8% of acid insoluble ash, 5.9% of water-soluble ash, 35.8% of protein, 2.8% of crude fat, 23.4% of carbohydrates, 14.23 of dietary fiber, 1.5% of magnesium, 0.03% of iron and 0.97% of calcium were present in the leaves and tender stalk of L. reticulata. Antioxidant potential of leaves and tender stalk of L. reticulata (IC50: 18.56 ± 0. 29 μg/mL) was lower than that of L -ascorbic acid (IC50: 6.10 ±0.21 μg/mL). Presence of phenolic compounds and flavonoids may be contributed for the observed antioxidant activity. In conclusion, this study reveals that L. reticulata is a good source for essential nutrients with medicinal properties.

Keywords: Leptadenia reticulata, proximate analysis, phytochemical classes, physicochemical parameters, anti-oxidant activity, fingerprint profiles.
