The Diuretic activity of Abutilon indicum and Amaranthus spinusus was studied. The fractions of ethyl acetate, methanol showed significant increase in the urine elimination, while benzene fraction doesn’t show diuresis. All the groups were compare to control group, frusemide was used as reference standard drug in this screening activity. The phytochemical screening study showed the presence of flavonoids, saponins, terpenoids, and steroid content in both the plants extract. The diuretic effect in all the extract may be due to phytochemicals present in the fractions except benzene fraction of A. indicum.
