Objective: The objective of present study is to systematically investigate and confirm the folklore use of Gymnospora Montana fruits in different models of ulcer. Materials & methods:  The ethanolic extract of Gymnospora montana fruit were selected and equipped in doses of 100 and 500 mg/kg. The antiulcer activity of Gymnospora montana was evaluated by aspirin induced ulcers, pyloric ligation models and Cysteamine induced ulcers. Results: It was revealed that ethanolic extract had marked antiulcer activity in all these models at a dose of 500 mg/kg. In addition, it was also found to increase the mucin content of the gastric mucosa. The observed results were attributed to the rich content of flavonoids in the ethanolic extract. Conclusion: The present study affords a significant contribution in confirmation of the forklore effects of a traditional remedy.
