Carvia callosa (Nees) Bremek is the name of a plant in the ACANTHACEAE family. This is an uncommon plant with strong activity that has been used to cure a wide range of diseases and infections. In present study, flowers and fruits of Carvia callosa (Nees) Bremek plant is employed for phytochemical analysis and biological activities such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory activities. In phytochemical analysis, sterols, tannins, anthracene, saponins, flavonoids, terpenes, phenolic nucleus, terpenes, reducing sugars, alkaloids, proteins, coumarins, saponosides were present in flowers extract of Carvia callosa (Nees) Bremek. sterols, tannins, phenolic nucleus, terpenes, reducing sugars, coumarins, saponosides were detected in floral extract of Carvia callosa (Nees) Bremek. Techniques for determining antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity that are well-known. Both the flowers and fruits extract of Carvia callosa (Nees) Bremek. exhibit strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Anti-inflammatory activity is highest in ethanol extract for flowers and fruits extracts of Carvia callosa (Nees) Bremek.
