The aim of the study was to determine the proximate composition, phytochemical composition and the antimicrobial potentials of the extracts of Xylopia aethiopica and Gongronema latifolium on some commonly encountered pathogens. The proximate composition results reveal that both plants were very rich in basic nutrients. X. aethiopica had 14.5% moisture, 2.41% ash, 1.38% protein, 0.33% fat and 72.1% carbohydrate. G. latifolium on the other hand, had 44.1% moisture, 3.43% ash, 9.10% protein, 3.65… CONTINUE READING
