ABSTRACT:
Basella rubra leaf extracts have been evaluated in the current study using histological analysis, physiological assessment, phytochemical screening, total phenolic content, total flavonoid content. Basella rubra extracts in ethanol, aqueous, chloroform, and pet ether were made. The presence of sugars, proteins, amino acids, glycosides like saponin and flavonoids, tannins, phenols, alkaloids, and steroids are revealed by phytochemical analysis. Androgenic, antiulcer, antioxidant, cytotoxic, antibacterial activity, anti-inflammatory, central nervous system (CNS) depressant activity, nephroprotective, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, antiviral, hepatoprotective, sleep inducing, and wound healing properties are among Basella rubra's major biological activities. In addition to these uses, the plant has important ethnomedical significance.
