ABSTRACT:
Crude ethanolic extract of Mollugo pentaphylla Linn. (family- Aizoaceae) was investigated for diuretic and laxative activity in albino rats at 200 and 400 mg/kg p.o. Which was compared with standard drugs Furosemide (10mg/kg, p.o.) and Agar agar (300mg/kg, p.o.) respectively. The extract was found to produce significant diuretic as well as laxative activity at dose 400 mg/kg. The plant was also found to possess the phytoconstituents like carbohydrates, alkaloids, gums, saponins, flavanoids, tanins and steroids.
