Abstract

NUTRACEUTICAL AND PHYTOCHEMICAL EVALUATION OF SCIRPUS KYSOOR ROXB.

Hemangi Datar* and Dr. Ajit Datar

ABSTRACT

The present work was designed to evaluate the phytochemical, proximate, nutraceutical and mineral composition of Scirpus kysoor roxb. using standard analytical procedures. Study of antioxidant potential and heavy metal analysis was also carried out by using standard methods. The phytochemical screening of ethyl acetate extract revealed the presence of phenolic compounds, flavonoids, cardiac glycosides, phytosterols, terpenoids, saponins, carbohydrates and proteins. Total phenolic content and total flavonoid content was found as 17.23 mg/g and 58.34 mg/g respectively. The antioxidant potential IC50was calculated as 48.50. Result of analysis showed presence of moisture (10.20%), total ash (3.875%), carbohydrates (57.33%), fats(0.258%), total proteins (23.75%) and crude fibre (3.36%). The mineral composition analysis showed substantial amount of elements in order of K>P>Mg=Na>Ca>Fe. Heavy metals like As, Cd and Pb were not detected. The conclusion of the study suggests that Scirpus kysoor roxb. has very good medicinal as well as nutraceutical potential and also meet the standard requirements for drug as well as nutraceutical formulation.

Keywords: Scirpus kysoor roxb., phytochemical analysis, proximate analysis, nutraceutical analysis, elemental analysis.
