Abstract:

P. granatum (P. granatum), also referred to as pomegranate, has been revered for its diverse medicinal properties across various cultures for centuries. This study delves into the pharmacognostic aspects regarding P. granatum, aiming to unravel its intricate biochemical composition and therapeutic potential. Employing a multidisciplinary approach, we explore the plant's morphological characteristics, phytochemical profile, and pharmacological activities. The pharmacognostic analysis involves a comprehensive examination of the anatomical features of numerous plant parts, providing valuable insights into identifying and authenticating P. granatum. Furthermore, advanced analytical techniques are employed to elucidate the chemical constituents responsible for its pharmacological effects. The study encompasses the identification along with quantification of bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, flavonoids, and alkaloids, well known for the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, & antimicrobial properties. The pharmacological perspective encompasses its applications in conventional medicine along with contemporary research findings, shedding light on its efficacy in the preventing & treating various diseases. This study not only adds to the existing knowledge about P. granatum but also emphasises its importance as a valuable reservoir of natural chemicals that could be used for therapeutic purposes.
