Languages of publication
Indoneesiella echioides (or) Andrographis echioides (L) Nees is an important herb widely distributed in south India. This is commonly known as False Water willow. Indoneesiella echioides (L) Nees is a traditional Indian medicine; the whole plant is highly medicinal value such as the leaf juice of this plant is used to cure fever. The plant was extracted using n-hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, acetone, butanol, ethanol and methanol. The present study was to be determined the preliminary phytochemical screening, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of Indoneesiella echioides (L) Nees leaves.
