Kotresh Y*, Ramana MV, Madhulatha B, Ravikumar M
Jatamansi churna was extracted with methanol and concentrated to obtain residue. The methanolic extract (MEJ) at a dose of 500mg/kg b.w, 250 mg/kg b.w by i.p route were tested for their anticonvulsant property against Maximum Electric Shock (MES) Induced Convulsion model in Swiss albino mice of either sex weighing between 18gms-22gms. A significant (p<0.01) anticonvulsant activity had been observed in the MEJ (500mg/kg b.w) followed by 250 mg/kg b.w. when compared to control group. Phytochemical screening reveals the presence of alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, flavonoids, steroids, tannins, triterpenoids, carbohydrates, proteins and saponins in the methanolic extract of jatamansi churna.
