Abstract

Many herbal plants are isolated and analyzed for their medicinal properties and healing components in recent days. Since safety and effectiveness of plant products promote the pharmaceutical use of herbs for health problems, in the present investigation different parts of the selected plants were analyzed for their physico-chemical contents and inorganic trace elements. Allium cepa, Aloe vera, Aristolochiabracteolata, Centellaasiatica, Ocimum sanctum, Piper betle,Sesbaniagrandiflora and Solanumtorvum are the eight plants used for the present study. These plants are easily available and few of these plants are often used in our food in our daily life. Among the moisture, organic and inorganic content of the herbal plantsanalyzedmoisture content was high irrespective of the plant parts. The inorganic content in all the plant parts ranked, next to the organic content. Analysis on qualitative inorganic elements for acid radicals like sulphate, sulphide, chloride, phosphate, carbonate, nitrate, nitrite, fluoride and oxalate and basic radicals like lead, aluminium, iron, zinc, magnesium, mercury, calcium, sodium and potassium recorded variations. The elements analyzed in the present work could serve as an important factor in determining the quality of the plants. Hence, these plants could be used as better alternates against a variety of degenerative diseases.
