Natural products have been an integral part of ancient traditional medicine systems. The objective of the study was to investigate
the phytochemical constituents and proximate composition of Garlic (A. sativum) extracts. The phytochemical screening of the
Garlic for various phytochemical constituents was conducted using laboratory method. The proximate and mineral composition
was determined using standard method. The qualitative phytochemical screening of Allium sativum aqueous and ethanol extracts
indicated the presence of Alkaloid, terpenoids, flavonoids, steroid, phenol, Anthraquinones, saponin, tannin and glycoside.
Quantitatively, Alkaloid was found to be the abundant constituent making about 7.2%, followed by Tannin and saponin constituting
4.8% and 4.3% respectively. The qualitative proximate composition of the bulb extract of Allium sativum bulb in g/100g showed
the extract contain carbohydrate, protein, fats, fibre, moisture and ash while the quantitative analysis result was presented as
carbohydrate with 66.00%, protein 16.23%, fats 2.44%, crude fibre 03.96%, moisture content 5.52% and ash content 05.85%. The
mineral composition analysis of the bulb indicates the presence of calcium (23.40%), potassium (10.95%), magnesium (3.90%),
zinc (0.44%), phosphorous (9.85%), iron (5.20%) and copper (0.05%). The presence of nutrients proves why A. sativum bulb can
be used as food supplement.
