  • Abstract

    Medicinal plants are nature’s gift to mankind. The plant kingdom holds many species containing substances of medicinal properties; the plant was used in folk medicine against pneumonia asthma and anthelminitic, diuretic, carminative, expectorant and emetic properties. The phytochemical investigation showed the presence of amino acids, proteins, alkaloids, steroids, flavonoids, gums and mucilage. The present study intended to evaluate the anti-ulcer activity was done in pylorus ligature and swim stressed induced ulcer in Wistar rats by using methanolic extract of Acalipha indica (MEAI). The MEAI showed significant reduction of gastric volume secretion, acidity and ulceration in pylorus legated and swim stressed rats at p
