activity of crude ethanol and acetone extract of the roots of Asparagus
racemosus were investigated. The Phytochemical screening of the
extracts revealed the presence of Alkaloids, Glycosides, Phenolic
compounds, Tannins, Saponins, Steroids, Flavonoids and
Carbohydrates. The result obtained from agar well diffusion method
indicate that, ethanolic and acetonic root extract of Asparagus
racemosus showed the spectrum of inhibition on Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, E.
