Natural products, particularly those derived from plants and microbes, offer an endless supply of unique compounds that can be converted into new pharmaceuticals. Due to their potential health benefits, bioactive components from herbs, particularly phenolics, have recently attracted a lot of interest. One of the multi-use forest tree species, Madhuca longifoliaJ. Koenig. (mahua), is found throughout much of South Asia and offers locals a source of food, fuel, fodder, and other non-timber forest products (NTFPs) in addition to timber. Almost all of this tree's components exhibit its therapeutic qualities.Mahua's phytochemical analysis reveals that it contains high levels of vitamins, alkaloids, sugar, glycosides, proteins, steroids, tannins, flavonoids, saponins, terpenoids, and phenolic compounds. These compounds are responsible for a variety of pharmacological properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, antihyperglycemic, spasmolytic, hepatoprotective, anticonvulsant, anticancer, results of the High-Resolution Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (HR-LCMS) analysis showed that plant extracts included a number of pharmaceutically significant chemicals. By comparing the weights and fragmentation patterns of the twenty-four (24) phenolic compounds in this work with those of published libraries, the LC-MS/MS method was used to screen and confirm them. The findings of this research support the usage of this plant as a source of bioactives and the beneficial effects of these compounds on human health. Madhuca longifolia, HR-LCMS, Bioactives, Natural products, Phenolic compounds.
