Preliminary Phytochemical Studies, Evolution of antimicrobial and in vitro cytotoxic studies of selected polyherbal mixture of dietary importance
Keywords:Dietary powders, preliminary phytochemicals, antimicrobial, in-vitro MTT assay
Background: In the present study we were evaluated pharmacognostical; antimicrobial and cytotoxic studies of the aqueous and Ethanolic extracts of the dietary polyherbal powders because they are great importance in the treatment of various metabolic disorder. Materials and methods: the following powder mixtures of Malus pumiplus (fruit), Momordica chirata (fruit) powder, Citrus limon (fruit), Pleurotus ostreatus (Mushroom), and Triticum aestivum (wheat grass) were extracted with distilled water and with ethanol. Results and conclusion: The result indicates that the above solvents having better extractive values with good bioactive components like Polyphenols, Glycosides, and Saponins. These are responsible bioactive phytochemical used in the herbal therapy. The aqueous and the Ethanolic were evaluated for The anti-microbial activity by cup plate method and the diameter of zone of inhibition is nearly equal to the standard drug and both the extracts showed potential cytotoxic activity through the in-vitro cytotoxic studies by MTT assay.
