ABSTRACT

Pudina [Mentha arvensis L.] is a one of the most important aromatic, stimulant medicinal plant belongs to family Lamiaceae. The aim of present investigation is to assess phytochemical and antimicrobial activity of leaves extracts of pudina [Mentha arvensis L.]. In present investigation, in vitro antimicrobial activity studied against pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli and Salmonella typhi by agar well diffusion method. The air dried homogenized powder of pudina were subjected in distilled water, acetone and methanol for solvent extraction. The methanol and acetone extract showed maximum zone of inhibition against Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli and Salmonella typhi over the control. The phytochemical study reveals the presence of flavonoids, saponin, alkaloids, tannins, terpenoids and cardiac glycosides in different solvent extracts. Thus, present investigation can be help to discover new bioactive components for the development of new drugs.

Keywords: Mentha arvensis L., Pudina, Phytochemical, antimicrobial activity.
