Phytochemical analysis and mineral composition were carried out on the leaves of Abrus Precatorius. The result showed that Tannins, Saponins, Flavonoids, Alkaloids, glycoside and phenols, Tannins and cardiac Alkaloids were highly present while Flavonoids, glycoside, Saponins, and phenols,   were moderately present. Glycoside and Flavonoids were absent in the leaf.    Minerals analysis gave a quantitative knowledge of the amount of different minerals elements present using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The result for the for the leaves revealed 0.13±0.08mg/100g Copper, 2.30±0.16 mg/100g, Iron, 18.20±0.08 mg/100g Zinc, Potassium 32.80±0.28 mg/100g, Sodium 46.32±0.02 mg/100g, Calcium 62.90±0.24 mg/100g, Manganese 84.40±0.24 mg/100g. Based on these findings, Abrus Precatorius is therapeutically valuable and can serve as a good source of essential minerals. ...
