Abstract: Plants are generally measured as origin of natural drugs and are extensively used in herbal formulations. Muntingia calabura (Muntingeaceae) is indigenous to Central America and Southern Mexico It is abundantly disseminated throughout Asian countries especially in India. The present research was done on the isolation, pharmacological study of the isolated compounds derived from root heart wood and bark of the root of Muntingia calabura. For this study, six compounds were taken into account and later it was divided into two categories as flavonoids and chalcones. The isolated compounds were further screened for their attributed pharmacological traits. All the compounds screened noticed to possess significant medicinal properties.
Keywords: Anti-Oxidant, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Microbial, Flavonoids, Chalcones.
Scope of the Article: Plant Science
