The qualitative and quantitative phy tochemical analysis of Bryophyllum Pinnatum(African Never Die) which are commonly used as medicinal plant in Nigeria were carried out on both dry and fresh sample. The results revealed the presence of bioactive constituents comprising alkaloids (0.89 + -0.02 µg/g and 0.37 + -0.01µg/g), Saponins (0.35 + -0.01% and 0.17 + -0.01%), Flavoniods (0.08 + -0.01 µg/g and 0.03 + -0.02 µg/g), and Tannins (1.24 + -0.16% and 0.81 + -0.02%) for both dry and fresh samples… CONTINUE READING
