Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the phytochemical constituents of Bergenia ciliata extracts and evaluate their potential biological activities. The extracts were exposed to qualitative phytochemical screening, revealed the presence of tannins, phenols, carbohydrates, saponins, oxalates, anthocyanins, cardiac glycosides, reducing sugars, coumarins, and alkaloids. These findings suggest that Bergenia ciliata possesses a wide range of bioactive compounds that may be involved to its observed medicinal properties. Further research is required to determine the pharmacological potential of these compounds, isolate them, and characterize their specific bioactivities that serves as their therapeutic effects.
