Anti-ageing means substances that have capacity to prevent or slow down the process of becoming old. The medicinal properties shown by different medicinal plants are due to the chemical constituent present in the plant. These phytochemical play a significant role for the treatment of several aliments related to ageing problems. To examine and investigate the phytochemicals present in the selected medicinal plants used as anti-ageing source in Ranchi District of Jharkhand was the main purpose of this study. The phytochemicals flavonoids, tannin, phenolic compounds alkaloids are the important bioactive components of plants. The Phytochemical study have been studied in leaves, flowers of Calotropis procera (Asclepiadaceae), Cassia tora (Caesalpiniaceae), Clitorea ternatea (Fabaceae), Mimosa pudica (Mimosaceae), Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (Malvaceae), Azadirachta indica (Meliaceae), Centella asiatica (Apiaceae). Ethnobotanical inventories depend on conducting interviews with tribal people, formal surveys in the field, collection and identification of plants. The dried leaf, flower, whole, plants were subjected to primary phytochemical screening through cold maceration method. The phytochemical analysis of seven plants was studied in which Mimosa pudica was found suitable for anti-ageing purpose.
