While from the chloroform extract, alkaloids and anthraquinone glycosides were found, flavonoids and anthraquinone glycosides were present in the acetone extract. In addition, from petroleum ether extract, flavonoids were detected. On the other hand, anthraquinone glycosides were found in the benzene extract.
