ABSTRACT:
Various parts of Bauhinia purpurea Linn is known to render several benefits towards the management of diseases. Hence, it was decided to analyze the phytochemicals, nutrients, antioxidants in Bahuinia purpurea stem. The results of Qualitative analysis of phytochemicals showed positive result for carbohydrates, proteins, alkaloids, saponin, phenol, flavonoids, fat, anthocyanin, terpenoids, steroids etc. The fluorescence analysis was also positive for the studied sample. The carbohydrate, protein, aminoacids was studied, among the three nutrients assessed, the aminoacid, protein content was higher compared to carbohydrate content. Similarly, the Bauhinia purpurea stem was observed for its antioxidant activity. Among the different antioxidant activities studied we could get the following order: metal chelating activity total antioxidant activity nitric oxide scavenging activity hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity. Likewise the phenolics was found to be in higher amount when compared to flavonoids. The presence of significant amount of secondary metabolites influences its antioxidant activity. The observed results of Bauhinia purpurea stem validates its pharmaceutical application in future.
