The Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (FAAS) is analytical or radiation source instrument is utilizing for the quantitative elemental analysis of any materials. The elements are very intermediate substances of any materials and medicinal plants, human body which plays an important role. Hence it is very essential task to study the mineral elements in the material like Ayurvedic Leafy vegetable medicinal plants for maintaining the life processes. In this present study attempts to estimate the level of essential elements in Nine Green leafy Ayurvedic vegetable medicinal plants viz, Anethum graveolens ,Colocasia, Coriander Coriandrum sativum, Curry Leaves, Fenugreek, Gongura, Mentha, Scallion plant and Spinacia oleracea collected from different places of Bidar district of Kallyana- Karnataka state. The preparation and analysis of samples were carried out as per the guidance of WHO. Here, total 11 essential elements like Mg, Al, K, Cr, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, As, Hg, and Pb are observed at less toxicity and high nutrition. The average concentrations of all observed elements were absorbed in between 19.36 mg/L to 0.03 mg/L. So, present studied all elemental content undergoes the WHO/ FAO/ NMPB permissible limits. Further the resultant data useful for the materialistic study in Science and technology.
