Isolation of Phytochemical and Evaluation of Antiasthmatic Potency of Ficus racemosa
The Present study reports important secondary metabolites present in Ficus racemosa The Ficus racemosa belong to the family Moraceae, it is popularly known as Glomerata, Cluster fig tree as well as ‘Udumbara’ in Marathi. Various plant parts such as bark, root, leaf, fruits are used as astringent, carminative, anti-dysentery, diabetes, leucoderma, antiasthmatic, hepatoprotective, antioxidant. The powdered Bark was subjected for extraction by using ethanol. These extract were evaluated for detection of various secondary metabolites, like Steroids, Glycosides, tannins, Terpenoids, Alkaloids, Flavonoids. This work evaluated the stem bark of this plant for its Phytochemical and Antiasthmatic activity.
