Abstract
The vast majority of people in this planet rely on their traditional material medica (medicinal plants and other materials) for their primary health care. The literature revealed that only fragmentary information has been available on this plant species relating to phytochemical and pharmacological studies by some investigators. This research was made the first time for phytochemical identification, evaluation of pharmacological activities, and characterization of undiscovered phytoconstituents in the ethanol extract of leaves of Hygrophila balsamica in-order to ascertain their traditional claims. The pharmacognostical study of leaves of powder of Hygrophila balsamica have been subjected to determination of organoleptic characteristics, physicochemical constants and fluorescence analysis. The preliminary photochemical study of ethanolic extract of Hygrophila balsamica showed the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, steroids, tannin, carbohydrate, and protein and the absence of gums and mucilage, phenols, sterols, and terpenoids. Ethanol extract of leaves of Hygrophila balsamica showed the In-vitro antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-diabetic activities. Characterization of ethanol extract was identified by GC-MS which showed presence of various bioactive compounds justifies the use of the leaves for various ailments by traditional practitioners and IR showed the functional groups of various phytoconstituents in this extract.
