Abstract

This study is aimed at evaluating (using ethanol as solvents) the phytochemical constituents, minerals elements and proximate compositions present in the stem bark of Erythrophleum suaveolens. Standard methods were adopted in analyzing the phytochemicals, minerals and proximate compositions present. The results of the phytochemical screening showed the presence of flavonoids, alkaloids, saponins, cardiac glycosides, phenols, steroids, and tannins. The mineral analysis yielded 26.18 mg/100g magnesium, 22.34 mg/100g potassium, 20.82 mg/100g zinc, 20.72 mg/100g calcium, 14.34 mg/100g sodium, 5.90 mg/100g iron, 4.36 mg/100g manganese, 0.04 mg/100g copper, but lead was not detected. The proximate analysis revealed 41.17% carbohydrates, 16.30% ash, 14.87% proteins, 11.72% crude fibres, 7.45% moisture content and 6.25% crude fat. Nutrients and mineral elements that are of high nutritional value present suggest that if consumed in sufficient amount, it would contribute significantly to the nutritional requirements of human. Also, the presence of the secondary metabolites observed suggests that Erythrophleum suaveolens will contribute immensely toward drugs development.
