Abstract: The hepatoprotective activity of the ethanolic extract of the rhizomes of Costus speciosus (Koenig) Sm. was studied on carbon tetrachloride treated rats. The extract registered a significant fall in the levels of serum glutamyl oxalacetic acid transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamyl pyruvate transaminase (SGPT), alkaline phosphatase (ALKP), serum bilirubin (SBLN) and liver inflammation supported by histopathological studies on liver, thus exhibited a significant hepatoprotective activity.
