The leaves,stem and the roots of V.punctatum were collected from Nilgiri hills, Tamil Nadu, India. A primary organic analysis conducted on the species revealed that the presence of bioactive molecules such as tannins, saponins, phenolic compounds (flavonoids) and other phenolic glycosides as their principal phyto-constituents. The crude drug (Patha) was formulated in to an arista using conventional anaerobic fermentation process for about 60 days. The formulation was screened for its anti diarrhoeal and anthelmintic potentials. Since the Arista contained phenolic compounds as principal constituents,it showed a markable and significant anti diarrhoeal and anthelmintic activities against castor oil induced diarrhoea, p<0.01and piperazine citrate induced paralysis p<0.01.
