Abstract: Syzygium jambos, a small tree belonging to the family Myrtaceae is a potential drug in Homoeopathy. The drug is useful in clinical conditions like acne, pimples, nausea, comedones, headache, heartburn, abdominal colic, diarrhoea and fever. The seeds are up to 2.5 cm long, ellipsoid to oblong, narrowed at middle. Seed coat is rough, thick, sclerotic and papery, made of tangentially elongated lignified cells with dense contents and separating from the endosperm. Cortex is 20 – 40 layered, interspersed with groups of sclerenchyma fibers. The endosperm possess large secretory cavities in the hypodermal areas. The endosperm is filled with starch grains often encapsulated in the plastids. A few tracheary bundles are present in the endosperm. Powder microscopical and organoleptic characters are presented. Physico-chemical parameters of raw drugs viz., extractive values, ash values, formulation, besides wt. per mL, total solids, alcohol content and TLC and UV studies are given for the mother tincture.
