Abstract:
Assam is the major state in North-East India and one of the richest biodiversity zones of the world having thousands of natural herbs and medicinal plants but a few are explored yet. The present study is aimed to explore two indigenous medicinal plants of Assam Oryza sativa var. Joha Rice and Citrus macroptera var. Annamensis for its skeletal muscle relaxant activity. The skeletal muscle relaxant activity was studied after pretreatment of ethanolic extract ethanolic extract Citrus macroptera var. Annamensis (EECM) and ethanolic extract of Oryza sativa var. Joha Rice (EEJR) with (250 mg/kg, p.o and 500 mg/kg, p.o) for 7 days in mice. The Rota-Rod Test and Grip Strength Test was used to study the muscle relaxant activity. ethanolic extract of Citrus macroptera (EECM) fruit peels showed significant activity in Rota rod as well as Grip strength test but of ethanolic extract of Oryza sativa var. Joha rice (EEJR) showed non-significant activity in Rota rod as well as Grip strength test instead it increases performance in both dose level.
