Pharmacognostical Standardization of Leaves of Hygrophila spinosa T. Anders

Authors and affiliation (s):


The present study deals with pharmacognostical evaluation of leaves of Hygrophila spinosa T. Anders (Acanthaceae). Macromorphography and microscopy (transverse section, powder microscopy and quantitative microscopy) were studied to establish the salient diagnostic characters. WHO recommends physicochemical determination and phytochemical evaluation for quality control of medicinal plant materials. The various morphological, microscopical, physicochemical standards developed in this study will help for botanical identification and standardization of the drug in crude form. Further, the authentic plant material can be explored for its pharmacological and phytochemical potential.
