Authors: Srivastava, Sharad

Keywords: Bergenia
Issue Date: Jan-2008
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Three species of Bergenia [B. ligulata (Wall) Eng., B. ciliata (Royle) Raizada and B. stracheyi Engl.] were evaluated for botanical, physicochemical and chemical studies. Botanical study of rhizomes revealed that B. ciliata has large number of starch grains; B. ligulata has maximum calcium oxalate crystals while B. stracheyi has a lesser amount of starch grains. Physicochemical studies showed that B. stracheyi had highest percentage of all physicochemical parameters (total ash 15.8, alcohol and water soluble extractives 13.83 and 16.83, sugar 5.5 and tannins 7.86), except starch and acid insoluble ash, which were highest in B. ciliata. A comparative HPTLC study was also carried out.
