Background: Nowadays these herbs and medicinal plants are used for their hyperglycaemic activity in extract form. Various studies of clinical have confirmed that extracts of medicinal plants help to relieve the anti-diabetic activity and the positive action of pancreatic β-cells. An herbal medicine, from time to time known as botanical medicine or phytomedicine or, uses different parts of the plants, including its seeds, leaves, flowers, bark, fruits, berries and roots intended for medicinal use. Objective: To perform the pharmacognostic evaluation, standardization, physicochemical and phytochemical activities of ethanolic polyherbal for the beneficial effect could be utilized in the diabetes treatment. Method: The powder of polyherbal was extracted utilizing namely of ethanol solvent, pharmacognostic evaluation, standardization was done standard methods by using. The macroscopic characters and microscopic characters of the polyherbal plant were performed from the PSIT laboratory. Result and Conclusion: The studies of the plant can be useful in diseases for monograph preparation and identification. The Pharmacognostic evaluation of polyherbal plants was performed. Therefore, a detailed report was introduced on the dried polyherbal powder. The studies of the macroscopy character indicated length, thickness and opposite the arrangement. Physiochemical parameters of polyherbal like moisture content and ash value of the crude drug were observed. Presence of chemical constituents in the polyherbal plant such as Shatavari I, Shatavari VI, Sarsasapogenin, Shatavari IV, glycosides, tannins, saponins and flavonoids, several Triterpenoids/sterols. A specific development and research work need to be done for commercial and therapeutic uses.
