Antimicrobial Activity, Chemical Compositions and Proximate Analysis of Ixora Coccinea L. Leaves on Some Clinical Pathogens

Plants derived bioactive compounds have been the centre of recent owing to their health promoting effects. An attempt was made in evaluating the phytochemical, minerals, proximate and anti-microbial activity of analyses standard agar well diffusion method saponins, tannins, flavon minerals analysis revealed the presence of manganese and phosphorus. Highest mineral content was recorded in magnesium (21. Proximate analysis showed the presence of ash (10.3%), moisture (7.10%), protein (16.45%), (6.10%), fibre (10.99%) and carbohydrate (40.20%). of the plant against Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed that leaves w against various diseases associated with the tested organisms.
