Plants are an important source of chemical constituents, which have potential as functional food and therapeutic agents. The ethanolic extract of Phyllanthus emblica leaves exhibited inhibition (61.12%) against ?-amylase at pH 7 and temperature 40?C. The extract acts as a non-competitive inhibitor and reduces turnover number (K cat ) and catalytic efficiency (K cat / K m ). It contains phenol and vitamin C content, 117 and 5.12 mg g -1 respectively. Antioxidant activity of leave extract (600 g ml -1 ) is equivalent to the 800 g ml -1 strength of ascorbic acid. The extract has antibacterial effectiveness against bacteria strains E. coli and S. aureus test organisms.
