Bioprofiling of phytochemicals and phytonutritional potentials of Solanum incanum L.

Title variants
Languages of publication
In recent decades, a lot of interest in pharmaceutical industries to focus on ‘Phytochemicals’ and healthcare sectors to concentrate ‘Phytonutrients’ deriveed from natural products of plant origin. Solanum incanum L. is a roadside weed shrub and its ripened berries were treating various ailments. In the current decade, an attempted have been made for screening of Phytochemical and Phytonutrients values. Its leaves, stem, root and fruits of ethanolic extract were evaluated. In percent phytochemical Solanum incanum contains alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, phenols, steroids and triterpenoids. The maximum amount of Phytochemicals and Phytonutrients (Na, Al, Mg, Mn, P, Cl, K, Ca, Fe, Cu and Zn) was recorded in fruit when compared with leaves, stem and root. They were analyze for their basic proximate composition, Vitamin, mineral elemental compositions and phytochemical profile to the results of this study suggested that, Plants play with altering environmental conditions to accalamize to these changes of its archetypes variations. This adaptation is accompanied by an unusual phytochemical diversity, especially for Phytochemicals and Phytonutrients.
