Abstract:
The present study was conducted to evaluate the ethanolic extract of Mentha pipperita (Linn.) for both qualitative and quantitative phytochemical estimation. The dried leaves were extracted using 95% ethanol in Soxhlet apparatus and the representative sample was used for phytochemical analysis. The results of qualitative estimation revealed the presence of alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, phytosterols, flavonoids and amino acids. Through GC-MS analysis, 24 different peaks were identified and many of which are reported to be pharmacologically active compounds. From the results it was concluded that the ethanolic extract of Mentha pipperita (Linn.) possesses remarkable phytochemically active constituents having pharmacological properties which can be used in veterinary therapeutics.
