GROWTH PERFORMANCE AND HEAMATO-BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS OF BROILERS CHICKEN FED DIFFERENT LEVELS OF Pakia biglobosa LEAF EXTRACTS

Research Article of Journal of Herbal Medicine Research GROWTH PERFORMANCE AND HEAMATO-BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS OF BROILERS CHICKEN FED DIFFERENT LEVELS OF Pakia biglobosa LEAF EXTRACTS Alagbe, J.O Department of Animal Nutrition, Sumitra Research Farm, Gujarat, India This experiment was conducted to evaluate the growth performance and some hemato-biochemical parameters of broilers fed different levels of Pakia biglobosa leaf extract (BPE). Two hundred and fifty (250) one day old (Ross 308) broiler chicks were randomly assigned to five treatments with five replicate consisting of ten (10) bird each in a completely randomized design. Treatment 1 contained 0% BPE, Treatment 2, 3, 4 and 5 contained 5ml, 10ml, 15ml and 20ml per liter of water respectively. Clean feed and water were offered ad libitum throughout the experiment which lasted for 7 weeks during which data on performance, hematology and serum biochemical traits were collected. Results revealed that BPE had a significant (p<0.05) effect on final weight, feed conversion ratio and mortality rate. Birds given 20ml (T5) BPE recorded the highest weight gain (1846.1g) followed by 15ml (T4) with 1839.1g, 10ml (T3) with 1763.1, 5ml (T2) with 1757.1g and 0ml (T1) with 1679.0g respectively. BPE had no significant (p>0.05) on the feed intake of the birds. There was no significant (p>0.05) difference in PCV, Hb, RBC, MCV, MCH and MCHC values among the treatment. However, WBC and its differentials were significantly (p<0.05) influenced by BPE. Significant influences were not observed for albumin, globulin and total protein. Serum glutamic oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT) and Serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) were significantly affected (P<0.05) as the level of BPE increased in the water of the animals. It was concluded BPE can be safely included in the water of birds at 15ml and 20ml without any deleterious effect on the performance and health of the animals. Keywords: Growth ...

Secondary Metabolism and Therapeutic Efficacy of Medicinal Plants

Review Article of Journal of Herbal Medicine Research Secondary Metabolism and Therapeutic Efficacy of Medicinal Plants AK MOHIUDDIN Faculty of Pharmacy, World University of Bangladesh Medicinal plants constitute main resource base of almost all the traditional healthcare systems. Most of the herbal drugs produced currently in majority of the developing countries lack proper quality specification and standards. Herbal drugs used in traditional medicine may contain a single herb or combinations of several different herbs believed to have complementary and/or synergistic effects. Both the raw drugs and the finished herbal products manufactured contain complex mixtures of organic compounds, such as fatty acids, sterols, alkaloids, flavonoids, polyphenols, glycosides, saponins, tannins, terpenes etc. The quality of the finished product is based on the quality of the raw materials. As many as 35% of the medicinal plants used in Indian systems of medicine are highly cross pollinated which indicate the existence of a wide range of genetic variability in the populations of these medicinal plant species which in turn reflected in the variations in the composition of secondary metabolites. Ecological and edaphic as well as seasonal variations also cause changes in the chemical composition of medicinal plants. These facts have to be considered while developing quality parameters! standards of medicinal plants and their finished products.Purpose of the study: An illustrated review of factors that influence secondary metabolism of plants and their impacts on therapeutic efficacy.Findings: Traditional plants are used from ancient time for various human well-being, both as life-saving and lifestyle drugs. A careful observation may explore facts behind therapeutic efficacy of these plants.Materials and Methods: A comprehensive literature review, consulting books, technical newsletters, herb magazines, journals, and many other sources. Health professionals like qualified doctors, herbal specialists, folk healers, alternative medicine specialists given their valuable suggestions. Research limitations: The limitation lies with the ...

Effect of germination time on the diastasic power of maize (Coca-sr variety) and paddy rice (Nerica L.56 variety): Application of amylase rich flours and their extracts in the fluidification and improvement of the energy density of fermented maize gruel

Research Article of Journal of Herbal Medicine Research Effect of germination time on the diastasic power of maize (Coca-sr variety) and paddy rice (Nerica L.56 variety): Application of amylase rich flours and their extracts in the fluidification and improvement of the energy density of fermented maize gruel Alex Blairio Tsopbeng Tsopzong, Stephano Tambo Tene, Gires Teboukeu Boungo, Ronice Zokou, Julie Mathilde Klang* Research Unit of Biochemistry of Medicinal Plants, Food Sciences and Nutrition, Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Sciences, University of Dschang, Dschang, Cameroon. To proceed this study, corn seeds (Coca-sr variety) and rice (Nerica L.56) were germinated over period of 240 hours. Flours and raw extracts produced were used to prepare fermented maize gruels (17.5% of DM) and the flow rates were evaluated using the Botswick consistometer. We noticed from these analyses that the germinated corn Coca-sr variety, in the form of ARF and its extracts presented an optimum fluidification power at 120 h of germination. As for the ARF of Nerica L.56, an optimum fluidification level was observed for the extract at 168 h contrarily to 72 h for the flour. The use of ARF and extracts from corn (Coca-sr) and rice (Nerica L.56) at 2 % and 2.5 mL resulted in a reduction of their consistency (gruels). Coca-sr ARF at a rate of 2 % fluidifies the gruel of fermented corn hence multipliying the energy density and nutritional value (3.57) more than with its extract and the different forms of the incorporation of rice. Keywords: Germination time, Amylase rich flour, Coca-sr corn, Nerica L.56 paddy rice and flow rate ...

A Study On Medicinal Plants and Attitude of Womens Towards Use of Unani Medicine in District Srinagar of Kashmir Valley, J K State

Research Article of Journal of Herbal Medicine Research A Study On Medicinal Plants and Attitude of Women’s Towards Use of Unani Medicine in District Srinagar of Kashmir Valley, J&K State Syed Sabahat Ashraf, Naquibul Islam, Shameem Ahmad Rather, Shabeer Bhat and Bilal Ahmad Bhat Regional Research Institute Of Unani Medicine, Naseem Bagh Campus, Hazratbal. Srinagar, Kashmir J&K *Division of Social Science, Faculty of Fisheries, SKUAST-Kashmir, J&K The Jammu and Kashmir state is covered by lofty mountains hang dense forests everywhere consists of three divisions i.e., Jammu division, Kashmir division and Ladakh division, and the state is further divided into 22 districts. Kashmir division consists of 10 districts each whereas Ladakh division consists of 2 districts. Srinagar is the summer capital of J&K state. Plants have been traditionally used for hundreds of years throughout globe as a source of medicine. Forest resources in the state of Jammu and Kashmir have played the most significant role in the economy of the state. The present study was conducted to know the attitude of women towards use of medicinal plants in Kashmir valley. In this paper, a well designed and validated questionnaire was used to collect the information from a sample of 400 women who visited unani hospitals selected randomly from Srinagar district of Kashmir valley. The results of our study showed that women show positive attitude towards the use of medicinal plants during illness. The women’s under study further revealed that due to less expenditure and side effect of modern medicines they are encouraged by elders to use medicinal plants for treatment. It is concluded from our study that there is an urgent need of giving mass awareness on importance of forests and medicinal plants to the women of Kashmir valley. Finally, in this paper, we discuss the importance of medicinal plants and suggestions ...
