The ripened fruit and leaves of Garcinia gummi-gutta were collected from various part of Wayanad, India. Dried fruit and leaf sample were subject to soxhlet extraction using methanol. Both extracts were evaluated for their phytochemical constituents and their antibacterial activity using disc diffusion method against five MTCC pathogens (Streptococcus pyogenes- MTCC 1928, Staphylococcus aureus-MTTC 3160, Escherichia coli- MTTC 40, Salmonella typhi –MTCC 3224 and Klebsiella pneumoniae-MTCC 7028). The qualitative analysis of phytochemicals in the methanolic extract of leaf and fruit of Garcinia gummi-gutta indicated the presence of phenols, alkaloids, tannins, terpenoids, saponins, steroids, reducing sugars, and phylobatannins. The antibacterial activity index was found to be maximum against Streptococcus pyogenes-1925 followed by Staphylococcus aureus-3160 in fruit sample and in leaf sample the activity index was found to be maximum against Staphylococcus aureus-3160 followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae7028.
