Abstract: Now a day our traditional medicine practice was replaced by western medicines due to the lack of Ayurvedic knowledge. It leads to the development of synthetic drugs. These drugs are very adverse to the human life. So that we can replace this through our folk medicinal plants like Hibiscus, Amla and Neem etc. These plants are widely used for diabetics, cancer and osteoporosis treatment because of their good medicinal properties. In our research we selected Hibiscus and Amla to know its medicinal value. Hibiscus flower and leaves is used for the treatment of constipation, ulcer and also it promotes growth and color of hair. Amla fruit is rich in vitamin C and this fruit is also used to control vaginal discharge and it has anti diabetic agent. The plants samples were extracted using Methanol. This methanolic sample is used to the phytochemical analysis. It was confirmed that samples contain many biological active compound like Flavonoids, Polyphenols, Tannins, Alkaloids and Terpinoids etc. It leads to the structures for the development of poly herbal formulation. In the DPPH assays the samples quenches the free radical of DPPH and prevents oxidation so it shows that samples have high anti-oxidant property. After this we subjected the samples to hemolytic assay to know the hemolytic activity. The negligible amount of hemolysis is happened compared with SDS solution so it is confirmed that the samples have anti-hemolytic activity. Thus these plants have good therapeutic potential.
