EXTRACTION AND IDENTIFICATION OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS FROM STACHYS AFFINIS
The Stachys affinis is a rare medicinal plant that is rich in protein, carbs, phenolics, flavonoids, and vitamins. It is mostly composed of stachyose, which has been shown to be is beneficial to health. The purpose of the present study is to investigate phytochemical screening to identify some components and active ingredients in extracts from S. affinis and to detect the principal class of chemicals contained. The findings of phytochemical screening demonstrated the abundance of bioactive components in S. affinis extracts. The methanol extract had a high amount of polyphenol, and polysaccharide content, especially stachyose content. There was 97.69% total polyphenol content, 58% extract of polysaccharide content with 14.73% stachyose content. So it can be recommended that S. affinis This medicinal plant might be used as raw material for functional food and pharmaceutical.
