Abstract: The aim of the study were to perform nutritional, phytochemical and sensory analysis and assessing the potential of herbal formulation made up of Wedeliachinensis leaves and Boerhaaviadiffusa roots in possessing phytochemical contents and to be a part of herbal tea development. The phytochemical analysis were performed for each herb sample to determine the total phenolics, total flavanoids, crude alkaloids, tannins and identification of phytoconstituents such as phytosterol, coumarin, terpenoids, anthraquinone and phlobatannins. As part of nutritional analysis, tests such as moisture content, ash content and mineral composition of the herbal formulation mixture were performed. GC/MS screening was performed to check the presence of several effective compounds which indicated that selected sample holds the potential to be stated under “Nutraceuticals”. Formulation of herbal tea with the selected herbs was made and sensory analysis performed to validate the aroma, colour, astringency, flavor and overall acceptability as an herbal tea. The results of the nutritional, phytochemical showed that the formulation mixture of herbs Wedeliachinensis and Boerhaaviadiffusa roots is an excellent source of nutraceuticals with high therapeutical importance. Multiple beneficial phytochemical content featured in this polyherbal formulation, makes it as a perfect physical and psychological health rejuvenator.
