Plants, acting as an essential source of nutrients and medicinal ingredients, have long been known for their natural arsenal. Human beings have used plants as medicinal items for around 600,000 years. The preparations released from certain plants lead to plant medicines. Today, plant medicines are popular worldwide, where herbs are used as primary medicines by around 80% of the world’s population. This medicinal importance is primarily due to the richness of bioactive phytochemicals in plants. In this study, we aimed at screening the phytochemicals and biological activities of Tarlmouniaelliptica(DC.) Fresh leaves, derived from plant material, were dissolved in four different solvents methanol, chloroform, benzene and distilled water. The phytochemical composition of extracts showed the presence of alkaloids, phenolics flavonoids and terpenoids. DPPH radical scavenging and Fe2+ chelating activity assays and Phosphomolybdenum assay were used to assess the antioxidant potential. The antiinflammatory potential was evaluated by analyzing the Inhibition of albumin denaturation. Biological activity of extract such as anti-diabetic and anti-fungal activity was also tested and the result showed maximum activity of plant species. Collectively, our observations suggest a promising potential for Tarlmouniaelliptica(DC.) during the treatment of diseases associated with oxidative stress, aberrant inflammatory responses, and glucose-sugar control. However, further experimental procedures are needed to support this postulate.
