Abstract

Objective: To carry out pharmacognostical and phytochemical studies on each part of Adhahapushpi (Trichodesma Indicum Linn. R. Br.) belonging to the family Boraginaceae. Methods: The root, leaf, stem, flower and fruits of Adhahapushpi (Trichodesma Indicum Linn. R. Br.) were assessed for pharmacognostical studies such as macroscopic, microscopy, powder study, and quantitative microscopy. The powder was assessed for proximate analysis like ash value, extracting value, moisture content, elemental analysis, and preliminary phytochemical studies. Results: The study showed microscopic and phytochemical properties which will help in identification and standardisation of Adhahapushpi (Trichodesma Indicum Linn. R. Br.). Conclusion: The study discloses precise identifying characteristics for the crude drug which will be of substantial use in identification and prevention of adulteration of the raw drug and can help as a reference for any further investigations.

Keywords: Trichodesma Indicum Linn. R. Br., Boraginaceae, Adhahapushpi, pharmacognostical, phytochemical
