Abstract:

Trace elements concentrations in four plants with anti-diabectic potency in Côte d’Ivoire were studied using Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) Analysis 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 and roots were analyzed for their trace element contents. The plant samples were found to contain essential trace elements such as Cr, V, Zn and Mn which are well known for their important roles in anti-diabectic preparations (herbal drugs). All the medicinal plants were found to be rich more than one of the essential elements under study. The elemental concentrations in different part (root, stem and leaf) of the medicinal plants and their biological effects are discussed.
