Number of medicinal plants plants having rich amount of condensed tannins are known to possess good anthelmintic potential and most of the published research are also based on anthelmintic potential of condensed tannins, but unfortunately the potential benefits of hydrolysable tannins has been neglected. So through this study we have evaluated the anthelmintic potential of two Indian medicinal plant as Rhus chinensis family Anacardiaceae and Tamarix aphylla family Tamaricaceae, having rich amount of hydrolysable tannins. All the collected well dried plant parts were extracted by using three different solvents as water, aqueous ethanol and aqueous acetone for three different techniques of extraction as maceration, soxhelation and simple percolation respectively. Freshly prepared extract were used for evaluating anthelmintic activity by using common methods of Nargud’s with some minor modifications against two worms Ascaris lumbricoides and Pheritema postuma. Piperazine citrate was used as the standard. Study concludes that most of the extracts were found to possess reasonable anthelmintic in dose dependent manner.
