Abstract:

India has a rich repository of oral medical knowledge as a traditional home remedies, folk medicine and regional health practices. The isolated area's inhabitants, who are unaffected by contemporary civilizations, rely on plants for their fundamental medical requirements. One such location is Chitrakoot, which is located in the Satna district of Madhya Pradesh. For present study 18 tribal dominant villages were selected and 674 interviews conducted in 86 Intensive field visits were carried out during 2020-2021. The study is focused on documentation of folklore knowledge with special reference to malnutrition control dietary nutritious folk formulation, and their standardization. The study deals with the various parameters such as macroscopy, powder microscopy, physicochemical tests, detection of heavy metals, screening of microbiological limit tests and high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) fingerprints of methanolic extract and nutritional value analysis were performed. Heavy metals (Pb, Cd, As & Hg) tests were performed and found as per the limits/absent of WHO guidelines. Microbiological analysis of pathogenic bacteria, viz. Salmonella sp., Escheria coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus were done and found that absent in formulated sample. Nutritional value analysis of formulated sample was done such as total fat % by wt. 22.63%, Protein (N*5.95) % by wt. 13.56%, Crude fibre % by wt. 3.2%, Total dietary fibre % 4.53%, Carbodydrates by difference, % by wt. 53.00%, Energy value K cals/100mg 469.91, Vitamin D mg/100g 3.39, Sodium mg/100gm 80.20, Calcium mg/100gm 1720.72, Iron mg/100g 1110.48, Potassium mg/100gm 1550. 7 were found respectively. These findings indicate that formulated sample is a very useful traditional herbal formulation used by tribal communities of Chitrakoot region to maintain resistant power and immunity against common ailments as well as malnutrition of the people. In future, it can be used as strength promoter, malnutrition food supplementary product, immune modulator and will definitely enhance the healthcare system not only the rural India but also in urban societies.
