The plant of Piperaceae family Piper longum whose fruits were dried and widely used as spices and seasoning in India. The dried fruit was widely used in combination with other herbs to treat various diseases and disorders in Ayurvedic medicine [1,2]. The analysis was done on the seeds and showed that they have the ability to treat indigestion, diarrhea, diabetes, cholera, obesity, skin problem and improves the bone strength. In the present study the leaves of the plant was collected, dried and powdered. The ethanolic extraction of the powdered leaves is done with soxhlet and the presence of bioactive compounds in the extract was analyzed using GCMS technique.
