Abstract

Aerva javanica belonging to family (Amaranthaceae) roots and flowers are reported to possess medicinal properties against rheumatism and kidney problems. A. javanica plant is used as Pasanabheda means one which breaks the kidney stone and therefore, in Gujarati it is commonly known as Patharphod. Pharmacognostical evaluation including examination of morphological and microscopical characters, determination of quality control parameters such as ash values, extractive values, moisture content, foreign matter were carried out. Hence, the present attempt was undertaken to investigate the pharmacognostical studies on aerial parts of Aerva Javanica. The study revealed the presence of branched trichome, rosette type calcium oxalate crystals in lamina and midrib of leaf, anomocytic stomata and anomalous growth with indistinct 9-10 layers of cork and 12-14 layers of cortex in stem observed in transverse section of stem in the Aerva Javanica.
