Effect of Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi) on Serum Calcium And Serum Inorganic Phosphate Activities of Male Albino Rat

Authors(2) :-Sandhya Shah, S. R. Barai

The aim of research study was undertaken to investigate the effect of different schedules of oral administration of tulsi(Ocimum sanctum)leaf on serum calcium and serum phosphate activities of male albino rats. Ocimum sanctum (1g/kg body weight) administration for 60 days in male albino rats on biochemical parameters weighing, between 100-150g obtained from the disease free stock of the animal house were used for the experiment of rats. The experiment was divided in control group and experimental group. Experimental rats were administered aqueous dose of Ocimum sanctum, and control rats received vehicle. Serum  parameters were recorded in male albino rats. Significant changes were observed in serum calcium and serum inorganic phosphate  activities (P<0.05) by days 60 of the Ocimum sanctum administration.
