Abstract—The scientific basis for the use of herbs in treatment and cure of diseases has been studied. The emphasis here is on the alkaloidal contents of the stems, roots and leaves of paw-paw, Guava, Plantain and Orange. The reagents used for this study was Wagner, Meyer and Picric acid. Results obtained show that alkaloids are present in the stem, roots and leaves of each of these four plants. These results also show that alkaloidal fractions of these plants could be responsible for the observed medicinal uses in herbal treatment of ailments. 

Index Terms—alkaloids, plantain, orange, guava, paw-paw and picric acid
