The objective of the study was to perform phytochemical screening of alcoholic and aqueous extracts of various parts of Psidium guajava and perform pharmacological screening for anti diabetic activity using alloxan induced diabetic rats and anticonvulsant activity by using PTZ induced seizure model. The phytochemical investigation showed the presence of glycosides, flavanoids, alkaloids, saponins, vitamin, carbohydrate, amino acid in the extracts. The aqueous leaf extracts showed significant anticonvulsant activity and more reliable antidiabetic activity compared to other extracts.
