Abstract: Phytochemicals are major sources for the treatment of various health problems. The present study was aimed to investigate the preliminary phytochemical screening of different sequential extracts (methanol, ethyl acetate, benzene, aqueous) of seeds of Achyranthes aspera Linn. (Family: Amaranthaceae) and stem of Cissus quadrangularis Linn. (Family: Vitaceae) by different standard methods of phytochemical screening. Our results reveals that the extracts of A. aspera seeds and C. quadrangularis stem contain alkaloids, phenolic compounds and tannins, steroids and terpenoids,, flavonoids, reducing sugar and saponin in appreciable, moderate and trace amount. Due to rich source of phytochemicals, these plant is may be used for herbal medicine.
