ABSTRACT:
Centella asiatica (Linn.) urban belonging to family Umbeliferae popularly knows as “Brahmi “, is very useful medicinal plant described by Charaka as an anti-aging plant. An experiment was carried out to study the antimicrobial activity of petroleum ether, ethanol and water extract of Centella asiatica plant by agar diffusion method. Zone of inhibition produced by petroleum ether, ethanol and water extract in dose of 62.5, 125,250,500 and 1000 µg/ml against some selected strains was measured and compared with standard antibiotics ciprofloxacin (10µg/ml). The present study demonstrated that the ethanolic extract of Centella asiatica has higher antimicrobial activity than petroleum ether and water extract.
