Abstract

Phytochemicals also known as a natural plant constituent present in all plant parts which are responsible for therapeutic properties of plants. The aim of the present study was to investigate the comparative phytochemical analysis and total phenol content of fresh leaves of Ficus racemosa, Morinda tinctoria and Nerium indicum. The phytochemical screening and total phenol content was carried out by standard protocols. The results of the present study confirms the presence of phytoconsituents in all the plants. Among the various extracts used, the ethanolic extract of Ficus racemosa leaves were found to contain abundant phytoconstituents when compared with other plants. Hence, it is evident from the study that Ficus racemosa has highest therapeutic values against various diseases.
