ABSTRACT:
Different extracts of Punica granatum flowers (Variety: Gulnar) were tested for antibacterial and anti-diarrhoeal activities. All the extracts showed good antibacterial activity which was comparable to that of cold water extract of Punica granatum fruit rind. Cold extracts showed better anti-diarrhoeal activity than soxhlet extracts in castor oil induced diarrhoea in rats as a model. Their anti-diarrhoeal activity was comparable to that of loperamide hydrochloride.
KEYWORDS:
