The current study focuses on the phytochemical analysis of the plant extracts of two different forms of Single medicine species which is abundant in the southern part of Kerala, India. The study, indicated the presence of major phytochemicals of interest which has specific properties characteristic to their pronounced antioxidant properties. The seven phytochemicals reported out of nine studied during phytochemical screening include phenol, alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, saponin, terpenoid and tannins.
