The aim of this study was to determine the heavy metal content in leaf, root and stem samples of Andrographis Paniculata using flame atomic absorption spectrometry. The homogenized samples of leaf, root and stem were subjected to overnight HNO3 digestion and analyzed for the presence of Cr, Ni, Zn, Cu, Fe and Cd. An overnight digestion with HNO3 yielded Cr, Cu, Fe and Cd recoveries among which Fe and Cr were found in significant amounts in leaf, root as well as stem whereas Cu and Cd were found to be present only in the leaf samples.
