Sunny Sharma [2] | Seema Bhargava | Kalu Singh Chundawat


Abstract: Helicteres isora is well known for its use in herbal medicine and it is said to possess many medicinal values. The present study was designed for screening phytochemicals in three different extracts (Pet Ether, Ethyl Acetate, and Methanol). Phytochemical screening was performed to detect the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, reducing sugar, flavonoids, glycoside, tannin, phenolic compound, saponin, proteins, amino acid, triterpenoids and steroids. Ethyl acetate extract was found to be phytochemically richer as compared to Pet Ether and Methanolic extract. The reducing sugar and saponin were not detected in these extracts. A good quantity of the phytochemicals may contribute to the medicinal and nutritive values of Helicteres isora.
