PHYTOCHEMICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL STUDIES OF MEDICINAL PLANT GLOBBA BULBIFERA
Medicinal plants contain phytochemical compounds that are useful as medicine in control of various diseases and disorders. In the present studies, Globba bulbifera tuber extracts are tested for phytochemical and biochemical studies. Ethanolic extract shown good number of compounds compared to methanolic, ethyl acetate, aqueous and chloroform extracts. Phytochemical analysis of ethanolic tuber extract of Globba bulbifera has shown the biological compounds like carbohydrates, cholesterol, Amino acids, Steroids, Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Cardiac glycosides, Saponins, Tannins, Terpenoids, Phlobatinins, Fattyacids, Coumarins and Phenols. The result suggests that the phytochemicals present in Globba bulbifera tuber extracts may show antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
