Abstract

Boerhaavia diffusa, B. erecta, and B. repanda have been found in use as 'Punarnava.' Boerhaavia erecta L. (Nyctaginaceae). It is pantropical weed, common on plains, along roadside, moist areas and towards the coast. It is equated with 'Shwet Punarnava.' B. erecta is a rich source of various phytochemicals viz. alkaloids, steroids, tannins, flavonoids, saponins, and glycosides. It is used in the traditional system of medicine due to its significant pharmacological activities such as hepatoprotective, gastro-protective, analgesic, antioxidant, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory. In view of the therapeutic importance of this plant and its potential to substitute B. diffusa, the quality control parameters viz. macroscopic, microscopic, ash values, extractive values, phytochemical screening, and chromatography has been evolved. TLC studies carried out employing solvent systems viz. chloroform: methanol (80:20) using visualizers such as UV 254 nm and 366 nm, iodine, Dragendorff's reagent, and 1%Vanilline-50%phosphoric acid. These findings might be useful to supplement the information about its identification, physicochemical evaluation, standardization, and quality control parameters of this potential medicinal herb. The physicochemical constants evolved in the present investigation will serve as the parameters for quality control and fingerprinting for plant-based pharmaceutical and cosmetic market products.
