This research work was focused on the haemoprotective activity of methanolic extract of Hibiscus rosa sinensis L. (HRS) flowers against phenylhydrazine induced haematotoxicity in Charles foster rats. Haemoprotective activity of methanolic extract of HRS flowers were estimated by using haematological parameter of Charles foster rats and it was evaluated with the help of MS9 fully automated haematology analyzer. The experimental activities for the methanolic extract of HRS exhibited statistically significant (p<0.005) haemoprotective activity against phenylhydrazine induced haematotoxicity in Charles foster rats. In conclusion, these observations provide evidence and possible mechanism of action for the haemoprotective activity of methanolic extract of HRS flowers. This activity of extract may be due to high phenolic and flavonoid contents.
