Antidesma montanum Bl. is the member of family Euphorbiaceae. Leaves of A. montanum were used as a wild vegetable, while traditional medicinal practitioners use the different parts of plant in case of ulcer, lumbar pain, eye disease, hematochezia, stomachache etc. Nutritional evaluation of A. montanum leaves shows high amount of carbohydrate, sodium, potassium, iron, polyphenols and ascorbic acid. Methanolic extract of leaves shows higher antioxidant power as compare to ascorbic acid. GCMS analysis shows presence of 9-Eicosyne, hexadecanoic acid, gamma-sitosterol respectively.
