Evaluation for Diuretic Activity of Abutilon indicum and Amaranthus spinusus Leaves Extracts

T. Shekshavali, S. Roshan

Abstract


The diuretic activity of Abutilon indicum and Amaranthus spinusus leaves was studied. The fractions of ethanol and methanol showed significant increase in the urine elimination, while ethyl acetate fraction does not show diuretic activity. All the groups were compared to the control group; frusemide was used as reference standard drug in this screening activity. The phytochemical screening study showed the presence of flavonoids, saponins, terpenoids, and steroid content in both the plant extracts. The diuretic effect in all the extracts may be due to phytochemicals present in the fractions except benzene fraction of A. indicum.
Keywords: A. indicum, titremetric, ethyl acetate, traditional, frusemide
