Phytochemicals are secondary metabolites and help shield us from various ailments and disorders. Aim: The aim of this study was to analyze the phytochemicals and total phenolic content of leaves and fruit extract of S. giganteum. Materials and Methods: The phytochemical analysis and estimation of phenolic content of S. giganteum leaves and fruits extract were done for evaluating the presence of phytochemicals in it. Various tests were performed to analyze the phytochemicals and estimate the total phenols. Results: Phytochemicals, such as phlobatannins, carbohydrates, flavonoids, alkaloids, and terpenoids, were present in the S. giganteum leaves and fruit extract. The concentration of alkaloids and carbohydrates was more than the other phytochemicals in both the S. giganteum leaves and seed extract.
