Abstract:

Trace elements concentrations in eight plants with antiparasitic potency in Côte d’Ivoire were studied using Energy-dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) technique. The aim of this study is to determine qualitatively and quantitatively trace elements in these plants and their medicinal roles in the human body. Leaves, stems, stem barks and roots were analysed for their trace element contents. The plant samples were found to contain essential trace elements such as Fe, Zn, Cu, Co, Ni, Mn and Se which are well known for their important roles in antiparasitic preparations (herbal drugs). Most of the medicinal plants were found to be rich in one or more of the essential elements under study. The elemental concentrations in different part of the medicinal plants and their biological effects are discussed.
