Abstract:

This study investigates the versatile traits of Chenopodium album L, also known as Wild Vegetables, a fast-growing plant found in nature with a rich history of culinary and medicinal uses. Investigating the properties of C. album when subjected to different solvents, including methanol and water, to uncover its potential health benefits. Our analyses encompassed the estimation of key phytochemicals such as alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, and phenol. Additionally, we conducted a comprehensive nutritional assessment, revealing C. album. as a valuable source of energy, proteins, carbohydrates, ascorbic acid, beta carotene, and essential minerals such as potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, and iron. Through biological studies, we illuminated the plant's noteworthy attributes, including antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antipruritic, antidiabetic, and immunomodulatory properties. this study provides an informative synthesis of C. album encompassing its, ethnopharmacological relevance, phytochemical composition, and diverse biological activities. In essence, the findings propose promoting the use of overlooked wild vegetable to enhance nutrition across diverse regions of the district, State cultivating them commercially to create valuable local products. This approach aims to improve the health of the population, elevate rural livelihoods, and positively impact the District and regional economy.
