The present study comprises physicochemical evaluation, heavy metal and minerals analysis and nutritive value of leaves of plant Boehmeria rugulosa. Physicochemical, nutritive value of leaves was done by standard methods. ICP-OES, Flame photometry and titrimetry methods was used for the heavy metals and mineral analysis. The mineral contents Na, K and Ca was found to be 53.82, 92.62 and 460.92 ppm respectively and heavy metal contents As, Pb and Cr was estimated 0.75, 2.22 and 0.68 respectively. Cd and Se concentration was negligible in leaves sample. The nutritive value of plant is 335.02 kcal/100g dry weight of leaves. The Physicochemical analysis includes Total Ash, acid insoluble ash and Loss on drying, which was shows the significant results. The present study can be used as a diagnostic tool for the standardization and identification of plant.
