ABSTRACT

Herbal medicines as the major remedy in traditional system of medicine. The aim of the present study was to investigate the various phytochemicals and pharmacognosy of Flueggea leucopyrus Willd aerial parts. The aerial parts powder were extracted with petroleum ether, chloroform and methanol successively. Phytochemical analysis shows the presence of alkaloids, steroids, saponin, catachin, tannins and cardiac glycoside. Methanolic extracts showed more secondary metabolites. The generated data from the three different extracts of Flueggea leucopyrus aerial parts provided the basis for its wide uses in the traditional & folk medicines. The pharmacognosy study includes organoleptic characters and microscopic characters along with estimation of its physicochemical parameters such as ash values, water soluble ash, acid insoluble ash, sulphated ash, extractive value, moisture content and preliminary phytochemical screening. The present study would provide the helpful information for the correct identification and authentication of this medicinal plant and may help in preventing its adulteration.
