ABSTRACT:
Aim: To evaluate the effect of wheat grass powder on stress induced depression and memory loss in mice. Objective: The main objective is to observe the effect of wheat grass powder on stress induced depression and memory loss. Wheatgrass is the young grass of Triticum aestivum. The powder of wheat grass is known to contain chlorophyll, aminoatcids, minerals, flavonoids, vitamins etc. Stress was induced in mice by forced swim test. Methods: Forced swim test to induce stress, Behavioural tests by using actophotometer and Y maze apparatus and histopathological studies. Results: wheat grass powder treated group showed significant increase in locomotor activity when observed in actophotometer. Wheat grass powder treated group chosen and spent much time in novel arm of Y maze when compared to other groups. Conclusion: From result, it was concluded that wheat grass powder shows significant antidepressant activity and memory improving ability.
