Primary Metabolite Profiling and Potential Antioxidants Activity from Fagonia cretica (Stem and Roots)
Many carbonic compounds are found in medicinal plants, which work as a drug for human body. Fagonia cretica (Linn.) is most valuable therapeutic medicinal plant, commonly known as Dhamasa and belong to Zygophyllaceae family. It is used as: piles, urinary disorders, dysentery, stomach ache, typhoid, cancer and as a blood purifier. Fagonia cretica is a small spiny under-shrub, found in North West India, Punjab, Deccan and Afghanistan. The present study deals in Primary Metabolite Profiling and Potential Antioxidant activity from root and stems of experiment plants. In vitro study of Primary Metabolites such as carbohydrates (starch & total soluble sugar), proteins, phenols and lipids, primary metabolites are a good source of nutrient and energy for cells and Antioxidant activities like: catalase, peroxidase, lipid peroxidase and FRAP by crude extract of various plant parts (root and stems) was investigated of Fagonia cretica. Antioxidants fight as anti cancer agents in human beings.
