EVALUATION OF THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF BERGINIA CILIATA A MEDICINAL PLANTS OF KASHMIR VALLEY, INDIAQ. BASHIR, S.K. RAFIQ, A. HAI, N.A. KHAN AND B.A. SHEIKH
Bergenia ciliata (Family.Saxifragaceae) was analysed for its biochemical composition and active medicinal components. The results revealed the presence of active components viz. alkaloids (1.54mg/100g), saponins (0.191 mg/100g) and flavonoids (1.6 mg/100g). The analysis of plant also revealed presence of fair amount of biomolecules namely carbohydrates (23.98mg/g),total sugars (41.95 mg/g) and amino acids (206.5 μg/g) in both rhizome and leaves. Photosynthetic Pigments (Chlorophyll-a, Chlorophyllb and Caroten-oids) were also analysed which showed their co relationship with medicinal components
