Abstract

While the traditional medicines are derived from medicinal plants, minerals and organic
matter, the herbal drugs are prepared from medicinal plants only. This current research work
will be very beneficial in figuring out the Matricaria chamomilla leaves extract diuretic
effect by determining the ions and electrolyte excreted by the animals using ion selective
channel inhibition. The phytochemical screening results revealed that the after which it was
observed whether the alkaloids were absent due to absence of turbidity and/or precipitate
formation. The colour changed from violet to blue or green in some samples indicated the
presence of steroids. An interface with a reddish-brown coloration was formed in the
presence of terpenoids, as positive result. Red coloration identifies thepresence of flavonoids
(Shinado’s test). A colour change was observed in the test tube, which indicated in the
presence of tannins. Acute toxicity studies will be performed for the species Matricaria
chamomilla which may have not shown any toxicity, which human body could be proved
with the help of obtained study results. Diurectic activity of the herb Matricaria chamomilla
has some beneficial effect on the selected animals, the herb Matricaria chamomilla may be
selected for the further studies to prove its clinical relevancy.
