Evaluation of total mineral, calcium, selenium, iron content of ten medicinal plants extracts of Manipur having anti-inflammatory properties” was undertaken to analyse the mineral content of ten medicinal plants of Manipur (Cissus adnata, Debregeasia longifolia, Clerodendrum serratum, Polygonum barbatum, Colocasia gigantean, Allium hookerii, Houttuynia cordata, Oenanthe javanica, Allium odorum, Solanum xanthocarpum). The total mineral content was ranged from 5.093±0.015% to 17.486±0.005% on dry weight. The calcium and selenium content ranged from 16.66±0.005 mg/100g to 117.77±1.92 mg/100g, 99.0.46µg/100g to 188.65±0.01 µg/100g respectively. The iron content of ten medicinal plants was ranged from 8.87±0.03 mg/100g to 112.37±0.04 mg/100g respectively. From the present study it can be concluded that the ten medicinal plant which are frequently used by the traditional healers/Maibas/Maibis and local people of Manipur for the treatment of different inflammatory diseases are rich in minerals like calcium, iron, selenium. Nevertheless, further in-depth investigation for identification of specific trace minerals is needed.
