Abstract: Water extract thylakoids of Senna tora linn, a legume in the subfamily of caesalpinioideae which grow wild in the tropic and considered as weed in many places but with great tradomedical value worldwide was screened using standard laboratory procedures for phytochemicals and haemolytic activities on human erythrocytes. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of three bioactive chemicals, flavonoids, terpenoids and cardiac glycosides. Haemolytic activities on human erythrocyte showed concentration dependent partial haemolysis with 4.4% at the highest concentration of 1000 µg/ml, an indication of its medicinal value, high nutritional value and less toxicity of the extract.
