Flavonoids are common plant constituents used extensively in phytomedicine to treat a wide range of diseases. Many pharmacological evidences suggest that flavonoids may play an important role in the decreased risk of chronic diseases associated with a diet rich in plant-derived foods. Therefore, this article focuses on the chemistry, distribution and pharmacological properties of rhoifolin as one ...
As we are well aware that production of metallic nanoparticles by physical and chemical method has numerous drawbacks along with use of toxic chemicals, high energy expenditure and non- biodegradable products. Hence, researchers are showing great interest in biological synthesis of nanoparticles. The biological method provide clean, bio-degradable, non-toxic and eco-friendly methods for nanopartic...

A rapid, simple, selective and precise UV-Visible Spectrophotometric method has been developed for the determination of Curcumin in bulk and in Nano-Formulation. The spectrophotometric detection was carried out at an absorption maximum of 421nm using methanol as solvent. The method was validated for various validation parameters. The linearity range was found to be 5-25μg/ml with a correlation co...
Many plants used as traditional medicine. Pharmacognostic studies of crude drug plays a very important role in identification of the purity and quality of crude drugs. The present study deals with pharmacognostic, preliminary phytochemical investigation of Cynodon dactylon Persoon belonging to family Poaceae. In this, pharmacognostic studies are concerned for the determination of physicochemical p...
In this study a cream was formulated from the plant extract containing anti-oxidant ingredient Embelinand its quality control evaluation performed along with antioxidant activity. Alcohol extract of plant was used. The extract was tested for antioxidant activity by superoxide scavenging activity. Quality evaluation of the product was assessed by using different evaluation methods. The stability st...
In the present study, an indigenous herbal formulation containing the ethanolic extracts of rhizomes of Curcuma longa, fruits of Terminalia chebula, leaves of Azadirachta indica, leaves of Lawsonia inermis and leaves of Achyranthus asperus were prepared and studied for its wound healing activity in an ointment base by using in in-vivo excision wound model in albino wistar rats. The ointment was pr...
