The leaf methanolic extract scavenged each gas NO and DPPH radical with a dose dependent manner. However the pet ether fraction of root was found to possess highest effectuality in Fe3+ reducing power assay. Flavonoid was found to contain highest within the pet ether fraction of root in terms of quercetin equivalent, equally highest quantity of total phenolic resin compounds (assayed as acid equivalents) were found to contain within the same fraction. The methanol fractions appeared less cytotoxic compared to pet ether extracts. The plant extracts caused a dose dependent decrease in soiled BM in each cathartic and atomic number 12 sulfate induced looseness of the bowels, wherever as leaf extracts in every solvent appeared only. Also, the plant extracts showed anthelmintic activity in oligochaete worm by causing palsy and death in an exceedingly dose dependent manner. At highest doses all fractions were nearly effective because the positive management helminthic citrate.
Conclusion: Thus, besides this cytotoxic effect its traditional claim for therapeutic use can never be overlooked.
