The present study deals with the preliminary phyto physicochemical evaluation of a well known folklore remedy for diabetic and hyperlipidemic activityi.e Morus alba Linn. The standardization is carried out on the basis of physiochemical and phytochemical studies and analysis of inorganic constituents. The study contributes to the development of standardization parameters of herbal drugs used in Indian system of medicine. In preliminary phyto chemical investigation was found that Aminoacids, Tannins, Phytosterols, Flavanoids, Saponins, Triterpenoids and Cardiacglycosides present in the extracts. In antimicrobial activity the effect of known concentration of standard was compared with the effect of alcoholic extract of the plant Morus alba.Linn using the organism Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans.
