he active group (s) content of Curcuma longa rhizomes (CLR) makes it a medicinal plant with a reasonable therapeutic potential. Therefore, in this study, we attempted to clarify these groups using standard preliminary phytochemical screening tests. Results revealed detection of Alkaloids, Glycosides, Carbohydrates, Cardiac Glycoside(s), Saponin, Gallo-tannins, or Catecho-Tannins (hydrolysable or condensed), respectively, Flavonoids, Resins, Steroids, Fixed oils, and Protein compounds. Anthraquinones, Gums or Mucilage and Terpenoids were not noticeable. Phlobatannins content is suspect. These findings may prove CLR is a rich source of active groups, suggesting that it may be a nutraceutical-based medicine in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
