Nirmala Devi Nataraj*, Ramachandramurty

ABSTRACT

Nature has been a source of medicinal plants for thousands of years and an impressive number of modern drugs have been isolated from natural sources. It is estimated that 70 to 80% of the people worldwide rely predominantly on traditional health care system and largely on herbal medicines. Various medicinal plants have been used for years in daily life to treat various diseases all over the world. In last few decades, Plectranthus amboinicus is extensively studied for its medicinal properties by advanced scientific techniques and a variety of bioactive compounds have been isolated from the different parts of the plant and were analysed pharmacologically. In our present investigation phytochemical analysis of Plectranthus amboinicus young leaves has been evaluated for the presence of bioactive compounds using various polarity solvents including petroleum ether, chloroform, 80% ethanol and water. The study revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, aminoacids, terpenoids, phenolic compounds, glycosides, carbohydrates and tannins. The results also suggested that 80% ethanolic extract of Plectranthus amboinicus has a promising therapeutic potential.

Keywords: Medicinal plants, Plectranthus amboinicus, Bioactive Compounds, Phytochemical Analysis.
