Abstract:

Ficus racemosa Linn., belonging to the family Moraceae, is commonly referred to as the cluster fig tree or Gular. It is a medium-sized tree widely distributed throughout India, growing either in the wild or cultivated for its fruits, which are consumed by villagers. In traditional Indian medical systems such as Ayurveda and Unani, Ficus racemosa has been extensively utilized for treating various ailments and conditions including skeletal diseases, diabetes, inflammation, hyperlipidemia, hemorrhoids, respiratory issues, liver dysfunction, cough suppression, hepatoprotection, antimicrobial properties, and gastrointestinal disorders. The present study aims to provide information concerning the phytochemical composition and GC-MS analysis of Ficus racemosa. The plant has been subjected to phytochemical analysis, revealing numerous bioactive constituents across different parts of the plant. Given the recent accumulation of research findings, the significance of understanding this plant, its traditional uses, phytoconstituents, and biological effects cannot be overstated.
