Abstract


Pakistan has been well-known for its rich variety of medicinal plants. For this study, Mentha arvensis L. medicinal plants belong to family Lamiaceae from methanolic extract of Mentha arvensis L. collected from (Shaheed Benazir Abad) (NawabShah), Sindh Pakistan. The highest saturated fatty acids were present in Mentha arvensis L. Behenate, Palmilate 4.90% unsaturated fatty acids of Mentha arvensis L. in Heptadecadienoate 19.59 % were observed. Total 29 compounds were isolated the extracts of the M. arvensis L. plant saturated and unsaturated  fatty  acids  have  been  isolated  and  identified  using GC-MS method, and 6 elements viz., Copper, 11.17 (mg/kg)Iron, 5.8 (mg/kg) Sodium, 60.20 mg/kg) Magnesium, 16.20 (mg/kg) Potassium, 10.31 (mg/kg) and Zinc 12.47(mg/kg)were isolated from, Mentha arvensis L were isolated from, Mentha arvensis L accumulation of Potassium was the lowest in Mentha arvensis L accumulation. Total protein in M. arvensis L was 42.44 %, as established by kjeldhal method. Protocol of ISI-24-1-e, was under of determination of total nitrogen, which was calculated using a nitrogen conversion factor of 6.25. The aim of present study was investigated the presence of fatty acids, elements and protein, give information about this plant contain medicinally important compounds are present and informative knowledge for the traditional medicines for the treatment of different diseases.
