A STUDY ON PHYTOCHEMICALS SCREENING OF PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PARAMETERS AND FLUORESCENCE ANALYSIS OF INSULIN MEDICINAL PLANTS Costus spicatus- JACQ.
Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic pharmacognostical characters of Costus spicatus flower extract along with their Phytochemical screening of physico-chemical parameters, fluorescence and Vitamins analysis.
Methods: The pharmacognostical characters were determined in terms of Costus spicatus flower extract constant, fluorescence analysis and Preliminary phytochemical investigation.
Result: Plant products are believed to more preferable due to less toxicity, economic and better patient compliance. Vitamins are organic substances that are essential in minute amounts designed for growth and activity of the body. The term also means that vitamins can be destroyed and become unable to perform their functions inour bodies. The phytochemical report of the plant exposed the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, flavonoids, proteins, amino acids, phenols, tannins, glycosides and steroids as organic phytoconstituents. Every constituent plays an important role and deficiency of any one constituent may lead to abnormal developments in the body. Plants are rich source of all the elements essential for human being. Qualitative analysis of various inorganic elements revealed the presence of Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, sulphates and phosphates.
Conclusion: The present study of good source of Costus spicatus may be useful for human health associated emerging diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cancer.
Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, vitamins, Costus spicatus, physico-chemical parameters, fluorescence analysis
