The preliminary phyto-chemical investigation showed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, saponins, glycosides, tannins and phenolic compounds in an aqueous alcoholic extract. The result obtained from the diuretic activity indicates the increased urine output and the increased quantities of sodium, potassium and calcium levels in collected urine. The result obtained from the hepato-protective activity indicates that the dose of 500mg/kg possessed significant hepatoprotective activity.
