Abstract :

Terminalia chebula is known as “Haritaki” belong to the family Cometaceae. It is also known as Mother of all healing. It has antifungal, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, antidiabetic, antiproliferative, antiarthritic, anticaries and having multiprotective effect such as hepato-protective, pulmonary-protective, renal-protective, radio-protective, cyto-protective and cardio-protective effects. Multiple drug resistance has developed due to indiscriminate use of commercial antimicrobial drugs commonly used in the treatment of infectious diseases. Now a day’s multiple drug resistance has developed due to indiscriminate use of commercial antimicrobial drugs commonly used in the treatment of infectious disease. In addition to this problem, antibiotics are sometimes associated with adverse effects on the host including hypersensitivity, immune-suppression and allergic reactions. This situation forced scientists to search for new antimicrobial substances and these fruits are beneficial for the five senses as they improve their receiving powers. Phytochemical screening was done to know the major phytoconstituents present in the plant material, Disc diffusion method was used for antibacterial susceptibility testing, FT-IR and organic analysis also done to identify the functional groups. Hence this results demands further research to unfold its therapeutic values.
