Abstract:

Monograph is a book, pamphlet or document that is complete in itself. It provides scientific information on the safety, efficacy, and quality control/ quality assurance of widely used medicinal plant. With the help of monograph we study the present status and standards of herbal plant like synonym, biological source, family, chemical constituents, medicinal uses, and pharmacological actions. Rose apples, scientifically called as Syzygium jambos is native to South East Asian regions belonging to the family Myrtaceae. It's a sensitive fruit which get bruises fluently. The fruits are veritably light in weight because they're hollow. In India, traditionally the fruit has been used as brain and liver tonic. Scientific studies suggest that rose apple has different health benefits similar as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antifungal, antidermatophytic, anticancer, antimalarial, and antioxidant effects. The seeds are also employed in the treatment of diabetes, diarrhoea and dysentery and an extract of the seeds is set up to have antibacterial activity. The chemical analysis of the extract from the fruit showed the presence of flavonoids, volatile oil and aldehyde derivations as main element. Medicinally the fruit is reported to have anti-cancer and the ethanol extract was effective as a free revolutionary scavenger, reducing total phenol capacity, total flavonoid content, and total antioxidant capacity.
