Extracts from common fruit trees like Carica papaya (paw paw), Citrus aurantifolia (lime), Citrus paradise (grape fruit), Psidium guajava (guava), Anarcadium occidentale (cashew), Mangifera indica (mango), Dennettia tripetala (pepper fruit), Dacryodes edulis (butter fruit), Vitellaria
paradoxa (shea butter) and Dalium guineense (velvet tamarind) serve a plethora of medicinal functions [52, 53].
U-shaped, ranging from the 9th to 19th lateral alveoli, 0.
dense, throughout trunk, except in the region of reproductive organs.
Indigenous to Africa, Vitellaria
paradoxa, better known as the shea or shi tree, is a member of the Sapotaceae family.
In the adult, the vitellaria
and almost all the internal organs are situated in the anterior part of the body.
In the anterior portion, there are the vitellaria
, the oral sucker with two pseudosuckers around it, the ventral suckers and the tribocitic organ.
cruzi lacks a pair of lateral auricular papillae, post-oral muscular ring, female pouch and its genital atrium contains 6-10 accesssory atrial sacs without sclerotized structures and its vitellaria
contains 10-12 folicles on each size of the body.
pedatum described by Fischthal (1973) in that it possesses a four-lobed pharynx, the ovary and testes are in the same position; the vitellaria
extend from the ovarian level to the posterior margin of the posterior testis; the prepharynx has a sphincter-like structure situated just anterior to the pharynx.
commencing from level of union of intestinal crura up to hindbody.
paradoxa (Shea butter plant) found abundant in the derived savannah zones of Nigeria and reported to possess a vast number of healing properties by indigenous communities was investigated for antimycotic activity and toxicological effects in wistar strain rats randomized into 8 groups of 3 rats each.
Ovary 21 (18-28; n = 16) wide, looping right intestinal caecum; oviduct, ootype not observed; vagina sclerotized, shell-shaped, opening into small seminal receptacle lying on body midline; vitellaria
Once stained, the following features were observed: 1) the vitellaria
divided into an anterior and posterior group with the posterior group extending the level of the posterior testis; 2) a ventral sucker larger than oral sucker; and 3) 2 rounded testes (Figure 2).
