Determination Of Some Macroelement Composition In Phyllanthus Amarus Leaves


Chapter One


Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

Phyllanthus amarus (P. amarus) is a broad spectrum mechanical plant that has received world-word recognition (Srividiya and pervalslaas). In Nigeria, it is called “Oyomokeisoamankedem” in Efik, “Iyin Olobe” in Yoruba and “Ebebenizo” in Bini (Etta, 2008). P. amarus is generally employed to reduce pain, expel intestine gas, to stimulate and promote digestion, as anti-helminthes to expel intestinal worms and act as a mild laxative. P. amarus also has antiseptic, diaretic, antiral, anti-diabetic, hypertensive and anti pyretic properties, and is also used in the treatment of jaundice, diarrhea, dysentery, wound, ulcers and urogenital disease (Calixto et al., 1998).

The plants of the genus Phyllanthus are widely distributed in most typical and subtropical countries and have long been used in traditional medicine to treat chronic liver disease (Liu et al., 2003). Phyllanthus amarus is an ethnobotanical plant that grows well in most, shady and sunny places. It is known by several other name as carry-me-seed, chanca piedra and quinine weed to mention but a few (Adedapo et al., 2005).


1.2 Aims and Objectives of the Study

The aims of this work is to determine the macro-element composition in Phyllantus amarus leaves. The objective of the study are;

  1. To determine the calcium level of Phyllanthus amarus leaves
  2. To determine the sodium level of Phyllanthus amarus leaves
  3. To determine the potassium level of Phyllanthus amarus leaves
  4. To determine the magnesium level of Phyllanthus amarus leaves

1.3 Scope and Limitation of the Study

This research project cuts across the determination of some macro-element composition in Phylanthus amarus leaves. Some of the physical constraints like level of study and finances are the major limitations.

Summary, Conclusion and Suggestion for Further Studies

5.1 Summary

Phyllanthus amaruscontains substantial quantities of macro elements such as calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium which are required to improve the nutritional qualities in human and livestock diets. The analysis of Phyllanthus amarus revealed that the sample contains very minimal amount of macro-element. Therefore, it should be consumed along with other medicinal plant which is rich with these macro-elements to enrich and maintain the body.


5.2 Conclusion

In conclusion, the presence of these macro-elements confirms the nutritional value of the leaves. The findings of this study shows that Phyllanthus amarus leaves contains various mineral element contents. If consumed with other medicinal plants, it could still met up the RDA for various age groups.


5.3 Suggestion for Further Studies

  1. It may be suggested that the vitamin content of Phyllanthus amarus should be studied and analyzed.
  2. Analysis on the seeds of Phyllanthus amarus should also be carried out.
  3. The amino acid content of this leaf sample should also be analyzed.
