Macro and Micro Minerals Content in Some Important Indian Medicinal Plants

S. Gupta, K. Prasad and G. Bisht

Abstract:
The mineral composition of the leaves/roots of three commonly used medicinal plants of west India Himalayas were determined. The medicinal plants investigated were Melia azedarach, Asplenium dalhousiae and Kalanchoe spathulata. The macro and micro minerals were analysed by Flame Photometer and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, respectively. The leaves/roots of these plants have also been reported rich in minerals such as Na, K, Ca, Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn. Minerals results suggest that these medicinal plants could be used as raw materials in drug formulation.
