The plant species Achyranthes aspera from the family Amaranthaceae is a vital healthful and medicated herb found throughout in India. Although most of its components are employed in ancient systems of medicines such as seeds, roots and shoots are foremost necessary components that are used for treatment of disease. The objective of this research is to conduct the preliminary phytochemical screening, of Achyranthes aspera . Achyranthes aspera leaves, stem and root were collected in march. Extracts of plants parts were prepared using solvents like organic solvents (methanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, acetone). It prepare to the extraction, screening and identification of the medicinally active substances found in plants. Some of the bioactive substances that can be derived from plants are carbohydrate, protein, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannin, and phenolic compounds.
