Elemental Composition of Three Medicinal Plants from Uttarakhand, India

Shivani Joshi and Devendra Mishra

An attempt has been made to analyse macro and micro elements in three medicinal plants (Solidago canadensis, Buddleja asiatica and Leucas hyssopifolia) collected from different regions of Uttarakhand, India. Macro minerals viz., sodium, potassium, calcium, lithium were estimated by Flame Photometer while micro minerals viz., iron, copper, manganese, zinc and cobalt were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Among all the elements, highest concentration of calcium was recorded in all of the three plants followed by potassium and sodium. Macrominerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium were present in greater amount in L. hyssopifolia while S. canadensis was found to be richer in microminerals.
