Medicinal plants have a vital role to preserve the human healthy life. The large family Euphorbiaceae contains nearly about 300 genera and 7,500 species. Generally they are the flowering plants. Amongst all, the Ricinus communis or castor plant has high traditional and medicinal value for maintain the disease free healthy life. Traditionally the plant is used as laxative, purgative, fertilizer and fungicide etc. whereas the plant possess beneficial effects such as anti-oxidant, antihistamic…

The ethanolic extract of Ricinus communis may be used for the pest management, however, further animal study is needed to confirm its physiological toxicity.

Hepatoprotective Activity of Ricinus communis Leaves

TLDR
An ethanol extract showed significant protection against galactosamine-induced hepatic damage, and showed dose-dependent choleretic and anti cholestatic activity, and hepatoprotective activity as judged by hepatocytes isolated from paraceta mol-treated rats.

TLDR
The study shows the RC leaves have anti-inflammatory potentials and flavonoids are dominating this activity in the extract.

Hepatoprotective effect of an active constituent isolated from the leaves of Ricinus communis Linn

TLDR
The hepatoprotective effect was evaluated by an increase in the percent viability of hepatocytes (ex vivo) and by the reversal of altered enzymatic levels (glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase [GOT], glutamic pyruvic transaminases [GPT], and alkaline phosphatase) towards normal.
