  • Analgesics Activity:
    The extract of the aerial part of Bambusa vulgaris at various doses examined for analgesics activity respectively. In general, the studies show that the aerial component of this plant has significant analgesic potential, which could be due to the presence of saponins and alkaloids in the extract.
  • Hepatoprotective activity:
    The objective of this research was to see if various Bambusa vulgaris extracts could protect mice whose livers had been damaged by CCl4 (carbon tetrachloride). SGOT (the enzymes serum glutamate oxytransaminase), ALP (alkaline phosphatase) are used to detect liver injury), and SGPT (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase).The result further confirms the protective effect of liver diseases, as histopathological investigation of mice generated by CCl4 indicates significant necrosis.
