ABSTRACT
Brihatpanchamoola are among the most important drugs in Ayurveda, due to their wide range of therapeutic actions. To meet the enormously increasing demand, the procuring has been boosted significantly. This indeed resulted to the inclusion of the brihatpanchamoola in red listed plants. Hence in the present study pharmacognostical, physicochemical and histochemical evaluation was made to find out whether aerial parts can be used in place of roots with the reference of API. The pharmacognostical evaluation shows pitted vessels, Prismatic crystals, lignified fibres. The Physicochemical analysis shows the presence of alkaloids, coumarine glycosides. Histochemical tests show the presence of lignin, tannin and calcium oxalate crystals. The result shows that both stem bark and root bark are having similar pharmacognostical, histochemical and chemical properties.
