Abstract

The aim of the study v‘./as to evaluate the diuretic activity of the ethanolic and aqueous extract of the seedling of Borassus .fiabellikr. Crude ethanolic and aqueous extract of seedling of Borassus flabellifer (family: Palmae) was prepared and investigated for diuretic activity in albino rats and that was compared with the standard drug furosirnide (100mg/kg, per oral [p.o]). The assessment of diuretic activity of Borassus flabellifer seedling extracts in albino rats showed that the urinary levels of Na+, K+ and Cl- were significantly increased by both the ethanolic and aqueous seedling extract. However lower dose has significantly elevated the Na+ and K+ levels but not the Cl- levels.
