Abstract: The objective of present study was to evaluate in vivo anti-diarrheal potential of Moringa oleifera leaves. Sample was analyzed for quantative estimation of phytochemicals and anti-diarrheal activity of ethanol extract, at 150 and 300 mg/kg body weight (b.w) was investigated using castor oil induced model. Study reveals that protein was maximum in leaves (23.35%) followed by fiber, starch, oil, sugar, alkaloid, tannin, flavanoid and phenolic. At dosages of 150 and 300 mg/kg b.w extract showed significant (p
Percentage inhibition of diarrhoea in control, standard and test doses. (*P<0.01, when compared with control).
