Abstract:
The main aim of this study is to analyze the nutritional composition and antioxidant content of the dehydrated medicinal herbs, for proximate analysis standard methods of AOAC (2007) were used. it was found that dehydrated Proximate analysis, minerals and vitamin content of dehydrated medicinal herbs powder Per 100 g. Nutrient composition of Ashwagandha root powder (Per 100g) obtained by chemical analysis is as follows, Moisture was found to be 7.45%, Ash was found to be 4.41g, the amount of Protein was 3.9g, Fat was 0.3g, the amount of Crude Fiber was 32.3g, Energy was 245Kcal, Carbohydrate was 49.9g, Iron was 3.3mg, the Calcium content was 23mg, Total carotene was 75.7 µg and Vitamin C was 5.8mg/100g. 
Nutrient composition of Shatavari root powder (Per 100g) obtained by chemical analysis is as follows, Moisture was found to be 9.5%, Ash was found to be 3.55g, the amount of Protein was 2.47g, fat was 0.11g, the amount of Crude Fiber was 2.5g, Energy was 22Kcal, Carbohydrate was 3.39g, Iron was 2.17mg, the Calcium content was 26mg, Total carotene was 87.5 µg and Vitamin C was 3.7mg/100g.
Nutrient composition of Ginger root powder (Per 100g) obtained by chemical analysis is as follows moisture was found to be 13.3%, Ash was found to be 4.05g, the amount of Protein was 6.08g, fat was 3.6g, the amount of Crude Fiber was 20.1g, Energy was 214.12Kcal, Carbohydrate was 39.35g, Iron was 9.8mg, the Calcium content was 88.7mg, Total carotene was 76.7µg and Vitamin C was 9.2mg/100g. Polyphenols content was found to be 19.80 mg and Free radical scavenging activity (DPPH) was found to be 67.16% in Ashwagandha root powder while in Shatavari root powder Polyphenols was 5.78mg and Free radical scavenging activity (DPPH) was 77.3%.
