In addition to the medicinal values of selected plants, aim of current study was to estimate the nutrient profile of seeds of selected medicinal plant (sweet basil and psyllium) whether the intake of these seeds is not harmful. In view of proximate composition of seeds of psyllium and sweet basil not only remarkable source of biochemicals and can be used as potent nutrient elements in the diet. The seeds of selected medicinal plants analyzed using the standard methods (AOAC, 2000), findings showed that seeds have adequate amount of nutritional qualities. The seeds of sweet basil have sufficient amount of protein and mineral matter as compared to psyllium seeds. These findings seem to be good for health purposes. Moreover, results of this study indicated that seeds of psyllium are being abundant in energy values whereas excellent source of fiber too as compared to sweet basil. These results are promising to do further investigation in this vast field of research to explore novel sources of nutrient might be used for various purposes in different sector.
