Evaluation of physicochemical and phytochemical properties of Safoof-E-Sana, a Unani polyherbal formulation
The results show that alkaloids of the formulation are more soluble in water than in alcohol and the higher aqueous extractive value of Unani formulation depicts that water is a better solvent of extraction for the formulation than ethanol. Expand
Determination of Nutritive Value and Mineral Elements of Five-Leaf Chaste Tree (Vitex negundo L.) And Malabar Nut (Adhatoda vasica Nees)
This study was undertaken to assess the nutritive value and mineral contents from Vitex negundo and Adhatoda vasica. These two plant species are fairly used as medicine throughout the greater part ofExpand

Ethyl acetate extract of Wedelia chinensis inhibits tert-butyl hydroperoxide-induced damage in PC12 cells and D-galactose-induced neuronal cell loss in mice
Results demonstrate that W. chinensis has neuroprotective potential through blocking oxidative stress-induced damage and that luteolin and wedelolactone contribute to the protective action. Expand
Contamination of herbal medicinal products marketed in Kaduna metropolis with selected pathogenic bacteria.
Most traditionally prepared herbal medications in Kaduna state are likely to be contaminated with a wide variety of potentially pathogenic bacteria and should be thoroughly enforced and monitored in the production and distribution of herbal preparations. Expand

Medicinal value of asiaticoside for Alzheimer’s disease as assessed using single-molecule-detection fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, laser-scanning microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and in silico docking
Molecular docking revealed that asiaticoside binds with amyloid intra- and inter-molecular amino acid residues, which are responsible for β-sheet formation and longitudinal extension of fibrils, and prevents ameloidogenesis that precedes neurodegeneration in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Expand
