Galinsoga parviflora belongs to the family Asteraceae. The Asteraceae family most commonly used for wound healing. The preliminary phytochemical studies of Galinsoga parviflora leaves and flowers were analysed. In my finding, Galinsoga parviflora leaves showed the significant presence of flavonoids, tannins, quinines and cellulose and in flowers contain significant amount of flavonoids, glycosides, carbohydrates, tannins, quinins, celluloses and steroids. Mainly flavonoids and tannins are responsible for wound healing properties. Flavonoids have many therapeutic use due to their anti inflammatory, anti-fungal, antioxidant and wound healing properties. Tannins are the main components of many plant extracts and they acts as free radical scavenges. Wound healing activities of this plant may also be subsequent to an associated antimicrobial effect. Based on this work, Galinsoga parviflora have the wound healing properties.
