ABSTRACT:
Herb has been derived from the Latin word, “herba” and an old French word “herbe. Antioxidants play a vital role in the defense system against reactive oxygen species. As oxidative stress is a reason for many human diseases. Based on the literature review the Nerium plant has a potent antioxidant activity when it should be taken in minor concentration. The selected Nerium oleander flowers were extracted with different solvent system by using Aqueous, methanol, Acetone and Hydro alcohol. For the collection of volatile Oil Hydro distillation techniques were carried out. The extracted phytoconstituents were analyzed by the preliminary phytoconstituent studies. To support this phytoconstituent analysis, thin layer chromatography was carried out. From this Phytoconstituent study we revealed that the Maximum number of phytoconstituent were present in Methanolic extract of Nerium oleander which also supported by Thin layer Chromatography.
