Abstract:
Use of ethno-veterinary to cure the ailments is a traditional approach since long and considered as an alternative to chemical anthelmintics where resistance is inevitable. Plant based products are known to have anthelmintic properties and have negligible residue and are eco-friendly. The present study was conducted to ascertain the different phyto-constituents present in the seeds of Custard Apple (Annona squamosa) and Karanja (Pangamia pinnata). Seeds of the plants were procured and processed under laboratory of the department. Cold aqueous and methanolic extracts were prepared and analyzed further for the presence of different phyto-chemicals, such as alkaloids, tannins, saponins, sterols, fixed oils, proteins, anthraquinones, flavonoids, reducing sugars, glycosides etc. The percentage yield for aqueous and methanolic extracts revealed was higher in P. pinnata seed extract as compared to A. squamosa seed extract. In acclaimed to consistency of extracts were semi-solid in nature. Blackish to dark brown color was observed in aqueous extracts of A. squamosa and P. pinnata, whereas yellowish brown color was observed in methanolic extracts of the plants. Identification and quantification of phytochemicals with the help of chromatographic techniques need to be carried out for estimating their anthelmintic properties.
