Tinospora cordifolia is plants family belong to Menispermeaceae. Giloy is high in physicochemical and nutritional value. Studied under the microscope, the stem had a wheel-like appearance at the transverse cut surface leaves and aerial roots show multiple mucosal channels, dense ceratenchyma, and characteristic wedge-shaped medullar rays. Silica gel G was placed on thin glass plates. Plate was air dried before being activated at 120 for 30 minutes and chilled. Under UV cabinet the sport travel plates are observed at rang of short and long wavelength between 254 nm to 365 nm. Yellow colour is observed by use different solvent. Analyses of phytochemicals revealed flavonoids, alkaloids, glycosides, and carbohydrates of the plant in Stem samples. It was required to understand giloy physical properties and to produce specific value-added products. Such as ash value, moister contend, melting point, powder characterise, refractive index, extractive value, and flow properties. The disc diffusion method and turbidimetry were used to test the antimicrobial activity of ethanol extracts from the stems of Tinospora cordifolia against Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. The ethanolic extract, according to the findings, considerably reduces bacterial growth.
