Abstract

The present study is to evaluate the anti-ulcer activity of methanolic extract of unripe fruits of Musa Sapientum Linn. and the fresh juice of the fruits of Emblica Officinalis Gaertn in Wistar rats. The methanolic extract unripened fruits of Musa Sapientum Linn.  and the fresh juice of the fruits of Emblica Officinalis Gaertn were combined and evaluated for the gastroprotective activity by ethanol-induced model and indomethacin-induced model in rats at a dose of 25mg/kg (p.o) and 50mg/kg (p.o) respectively. Biochemical parameters like ulcer index, the volume of gastric juice, pH of gastric juice, free acidity and total acidity were studied. The unripe fruits of Musa and the fresh juice of Embilica will contain flavonoids, flavones, abscisic acid which shows a significant reduction in gastric volume, pH, free acidity, total acidity and ulcer index at the doses of 25mg/kg (p.o) and 50mg/kg (p.o). The results show that the unripe fruits 0f Musa Sapientum Linn. and fresh juice from the fruits of Emblica Officinalis Gaertn will combinedly possess greater antiulcer activity than that of the individual drugs.
