Kundan Prasad

Abstract:
The leave of E. hirta collected from Uttarakhand, India. The plants contained antioxidants such as β-carotene, vitamin C and phenolics (297.44, 91.18 and 336.56 mg 100 g-1), respectively. The plants have been reported rich in nutrients such as crude protein, carbohydrate, crude lipids, starch and crude fiber (12.57, 13.92, 3.67, 18.19 and 36.59 g 100 g-1), respectively. The plants have also been reported rich in minerals such as Na, K, Ca, S, P, Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn (175.83, 5536.27, 116.94, 1746.11, 241.89, 82.82, 8.71, 2.60 and 5.44 mg 100 g-1), respectively. The plants have been found as a good source of nutrients, antioxidants and minerals. Results suggest plants aerial parts could be used as raw materials in drug formulation.
