  • Abstract

    Embelia basal (R. & S.) A. DC, a shrub from family Myrsinaceae is a well known traditional medicine from ancient times. Various species of Embelia are used in Ayurveda for therapeutic purposes. Embelia basal contains health promoting factors such as minerals and metals in different concentrations which is used in indigenous medicines. Fruits of Embelia basal are quantified using atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Metal analysis of fruits shows the presence of vital essential minerals. The majority of the plant material is rich in some essential minerals like Fe, K, Zn, Cu, Mg, Ca, Al, Mn along with N and P 2O5 which are known to be beneficial for health. The quantitative metal analysis shows the presence of trace amount of Nickel and Cobalt. The present study provides fundamental data on the availability of some essential minerals, which can be useful to provide dietary information for designing value added foods and for food biofortification. These results may help in the development of new drug formulations.
