Abstract:

Plants have served animals and humans as a natural source for therapies from ancient times, amongst them medicinal herbs have gain attention because of its wide use and less side effects. In the recent years plant research has increased throughout the world and a huge amount of evidences have been collected to show immense potential of medicinal plants used in various traditional systems, thus in the present investigation the phytochemical analysis of Moringa oleifera leaf meal was carried out as these plants have been proved to be one of the important nutritional and medicinal plant. The phytochemical analysis was carried out for the Moringa oleifera leaf meal extracted with aqueous and alcoholic solvents. The qualitative showed that presence of flavonoids, tannins, total phenols, saponins, and alkaloids were mainly seen in aqueous and alcoholic extract of leaf meal. In quantitative analysis showed that the level of flavonoids, tannins, total phenols, saponin and alkaloids in aqueous extract of Moringa oleifera leaf meal were 3.60, 1.25, 2.02, 0.59 and 1.12 per cent respectively. The presences of high amount of phytochemical constituents suggest that the Moringa oleifera plant has higher medicinal value and can be extensively studied to extract the natural compounds which are beneficial to animals and humans.
