Abstract

Cycas revoluta is commonly known as sago palm, belongs to gymnosperm species, and Cycadaceae
family. Its fruits are used traditionally to cure several diseases such as reduced blood pressure, bone
pain, cough, diuretic, hypertension, hair growth, and many more. The sarcotesta layer of Cycas
revoluta fruits have been extracted with the help of the soxhlet apparatus with ethanol as a solvent for
72 hours. The resulting liquid has been concentrated to crude extract rotary evaporator. The
preliminary phytochemicals screening of extract has been investigated followed by its Gas
Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis.
