Proximate composition of powdered stem of Saccharum barberi and body weight indices of Albino wistar rats was investigated after 21 days of extract administration. Forty albino wistar rats of male sex were randomly assigned into four study groups of ten animals each to give in all four study groups of male wistar rats respectively. Graded doses of the alcoholic extracts 100mg/kg, 200mg/kg and 300mg/kg body weight in normal saline were administered to the treatment groups II, III and IV via orogastric tube; the control group I received placebo (normal saline) for 21 days. At the end of 21days period, the experiments were terminated. The proximate analysis showed carbohydrates, moisture and fibre at high concentration. The microelement determination indicated presence of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus at high concentration compared to others; Zinc, Sodium, Iron, Manganese and Potassium respectively.
