Clitoria ternatea Linn is a well known bio active plant in the Ayurvedic medicine. The present study evaluates the analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity of Clitoria ternatea Linn flower extract. The petroleum ether (60-80 C) extract poses significant anti inflammatory, analgesic properties. The extract is found to be safe even at the dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight by acute toxicity studies. Phytochemical investigation carried out on Petroleum ether(60-80 C) extract reveals the presence of Taraxerol, a pentacyclic triterpenoid which may impart the pharmacological activity of the extract.
