ABSTRACT:
Background: Cichorium intybus Linn., belonging to Compositae family is a common drug found in India. It is traditionally used in the treatment of inflammation, cancer, viral, bacterial fungal infections and liver toxicity. This plant also has power to stimulate the immune system. Aim: Here in the paper an attempt has been made to determine the authenticity of C.intybus stem by means of Pharmacognostical and Phytochemical analysis. Methods: Macroscopy, microscopy, powder analysis, physicochemical properties, preliminary phytochemical analysis and TLC of different extracts of stem were done. Result: Microscopy of stem showed all typical features of the species Cichorium intybus Linn., The physicochemical study showed the highest extractive value with alcohol. Preliminary phytochemical confirmed the positive chemical test for Flavanoids, Alkaloids, Sterols, Carbohydrates, Resins, Phenolics and Glycosides in various extracts.
