Zinger officinale has been used as a traditional source against gastric disturbances from time immemorial. The ulcer-preventive properties of aqueous extract of ginger rhizome (GRAE) belonging to the family Zingiberaceae is reported in the present study. GRAE at 200 mg kg−1 b.w. protected up to 86% and 77% for the swim stress-/ethanol stress-induced ulcers with an ulcer index (UI) of 50 ± 4.0/46 ± 4.0, respectively, similar to that of lansoprazole (80%) at 30 mg kg−1 b.w.

The aqueous and methanol extracts of 12 plants each belonging to different families were evaluated for antibacterial activity against medically important bacteria viz. B. cereus ATCC11778 , S. epidermidids ATCC12228 , E. aerogenes ATCC13048, P. vulgaris NCTC 8313, S. typhimurium ATCC 23564. The in vitro antibacterial activity was performed by agar disc diffusion and agar well diffusion method. The aqueous extracts were inactive but methanol extracts showed some degree of antibacterial activity a...

The uses of traditional medicinal plants for primary health care have steadily increased worldwide in recent years. Scientists are in search of new phytochemicals that could be developed as useful anti-microbials for treatment of infectious diseases. Currently, out of 80% of pharmaceuticals derived from plants, very few are now being used as anti-microbials. Plants are rich in a wide variety of secondary metabolites that have found anti-microbial properties. This review highlights the current st...

Plants used for traditional medicine contain a wide range of substances which can be used to treat various infectious diseases. Hence, antibacterial activities of ethanolic extracts of 19 plant species were studied against multi-drug resistant clinical isolates using agar well diffusion method. Extracts of Liquidambar orientalis , Vitis vinifera , Rosmarinus officinalis , Punica granatum , Cornus sanguinea , Euphorbia peplus , Ecballium elaterium , Inula viscosa and Liquidambar orientalis showed...

The increasing rate of development of resistance to commonly use antibiotics have led to search for newer, more effective, affordable and easily available drugs. In this study, aqueous extracts of mangifera indica, allium cepa and carica papaya were used against infections of E. coli, salmonella enteritis, and shigella flexneri respectively. They were observed to be effective against these infectious diseases. From these observations, it may be suggested that the plants extract may possess effec...

Spices and herbs have been used for thousands of centuries as preservatives for foods and for medicinal purposes. Some of these spices and herbs possess antimicrobial potentials that may, in combination, be considered as alternatives to conventional antimicrobial agents especially in this era of antimicrobial drug resistance. Our interest however, is on the widely consumed Nigerian suya meat sauce called Yaji. It is a complex mixture of salt, ginger, clove, red pepper and black pepper, all of wh...

The antioxidant potential of extracts and essential oils of korarima (Aframomum corrorima (Braun) P.C.M. Jansen) were investigated, as well as total phenolics, total ascorbic acid (TAA), condensed tannins (CT) and antifungal potential. Antioxidant capacities of seeds and pods as assayed in methanol extracts, and of essential oils were at moderate levels.The antioxidant activity of seeds (29.59 imol/g dry weight (DW)) was significantly higher than that of pods (14.23 imol/g DW) by FRAP (Ferric Re...

Woodferdia fruticosa Kurz was tested for antibacterial activity against fourteen human pathogenic bacteria. The dried flowers were extracted with deferent solvents viz., petroleum ether, chloroform, methanol, ethanol and water using soxhlet apparatus. All the solvent extracts were evaporated to dryness using rotary flash evaporator. Dry residue was dissolved in respective solvents (1:10 w/v) and tested for antibacterial activity. The result revealed that among five solvents tested, petroleum eth...

The present study was aimed to document detailed ethnopharmacological knowledge of medicinal plants against livestock infections of an unexplored remote region of Pakistan. Semistructured questionnaires were used for data collection. Total 43 plants belonging to 26 families were found to be used in ethnoveterinary practices. Seeds (29%) were found to be the most frequent plant part used followed by leaves (22%). Ethnoveterinary recipes were mostly prepared in the form of decoction and powdering....
