Abstract:

Medicinal plants are an important source for the research of active molecules against diseases. The plants used in this setting are rich in therapeutic substances. This study aimed to collect the ethno-medical use of Acanthospermum hispidum in the Central West region from resource persons and to determine these pharmacognosic characteristics. A survey collected information on Acanthospermum hispidum using a sheet. The whole plant has been used for pharmacognosic characterization through histochemistry and biological activities. There was strong use of the plant in the Central West region. The majority of the people surveyed were men (76.40%). The histochemistry of Acanthospermum hispidum allowed the detection of phytochemical groups. Biological activities showed that the ethanolic extract had a good ability to trap free radicals, with a 50% IC of 21.46 ± 1.85 μg/mL for rat liver lipids. These results are probably a scientific source for the use of Acanthospermum hispidum as a medicinal plant in the Central West region. The high use of this plant could be explained for its wealth of secondary metabolites.
