Abstract

Plants are known to synthesize an array of secondary metabolites referred to as phytochemicals that have disease-prevention properties. Potential efficacy and minimum to no side effects are key advantages of plant-derived products, making them sustainable choices for medical treatments. The aim is to investigate the antibacterial activity and phytochemical screening of methanolic, ethanolic, ethyl acetate and chloroform extracts of Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) rhizomes. New antimicrobial agents need to be developed to battle the rapidly evolving pathogens.
