Abstract: Thespesia populnea and Abelmoschus esculentus were studied to draw connections between their chemical properties and their use as treatments for conjunctivitis by local people. It was hypothesized that these plants contain active compounds that reduce swelling, enhance antibacterial activity, or act like antihistamines, and that the plants might have similar chemical compositions as seen in respective specific drugs. Flavanoids of popular vegetable have been intensively studied, but little is known about the flavanoid content of underutilized vegetable species. Many of which are partially domesticated or wild (Ray and#150; Yu Yang et al., 2008). Flavonoids are 15-carbon compounds generally distributed throughout the plant kingdom. To better understand the associations of flavanoids intake and health outcomes, analysis of flavanoids in plant foods, an intense area of research, clinical and epidemiological studies are required (Chun et al., 2007 and Daucher et al., 2006).It has long been recognized that fruits and vegetables are essential to a healthy and well balanced diet required for healthy living. It has also been recognized that high consumption of some fruits and vegetables is beneficial to health in combating the onset of cancer, coronary disease, inflammation, arthritis, immune system decline, brain dysfunction and cataracts
