Medicinal plants have biologically compounds which are used for treating various human diseases and also play an important role in curing. Phytochemicals have two categories i.e., primary and secondary constituents. Primary constituents involve chlorophyll, proteins sugar and amino acids whereas secondary constituents contain terpenoids and alkaloids Phytochemicals are certain non-nutritive plant chemicals which have some disease preventive properties. The given five extract aqueous, acetone, chloroform, ethanol and methanol extracts of leaves of the fresh Amaranthus spinosus were screened for the presence of different phytochemical by standard procedure. The present study indicates that the fresh plant contains different classes of secondary metabolites such as alkaloids, steroids, flavonoids, terpenoids, saponins, cardiac glycosides, tannins etc. the presence of these secondary metabolites signifies the potential of   Amarantus spinosus as a source of therapeutic agent. Therefore, it is of interest to investigate the phytochemical constituents of the Indian medicinal plant Amaranthus spinosus

 

Key words: Amaranthus spinosus, Phytochemicals, flavonoids, saponins, alkaloids
