Estimation of two primary metabolites from medicinally valuable plant “Ashwagandha”

M.C. Mali and Neetu Harsh

Medicinal plants are the most exclusive source of life saving drug for the majority of the world’s population.Laboratory evaluations were made to assess the study of primary metabolites of various plant parts in selected plant. Withania somnifera plant was collected from local area of Bikaner (Sagar) and used for estimation of two primary metabolites (Protein and ascorbic acid).The highest amount of protein (13.8 mg/100 g.d.w.), ascorbic acid (74.46 mg/100 g.d.w.) was observed in the stem.Similarly the lowest amount of protein (5.51 mg/100 g.d.w.) ascorbic acid (39.31 mg/100 g.d.w.) was observed in stems and leaves.
