The purpose of this work was to conduct a qualitative phytochemical screening of Galium asperifolium Wall extracts, including aqueous, ethanol, methanol, n-hexane, and ethyl acetate extracts, to identify potential bioactive compounds. The presence of tannins, flavonoids, phenols, terpenoids, saponins, anthocyanins, cardiac glycosides, coumarins, and alkaloids was detected, indicating their possible involvement in the plant's medicinal properties. Further research is necessary to explore the pharmacological potential of these compounds, isolate them, and characterize their bioactive properties responsible for the observed medicinal effects.
