Canna indica contains numerous natural bioactive compounds which having complex intriguing chemical structures. Plants that release of active compounds have been isolated, purified and employed in a wide range of application. The present study aimed at analyzing and identifying the bioactive compounds (Secondary metabolites) derived from the methanolic extracts of Canna indica leaves and flowers using the GC-MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) were analyzed dependence on retention and molecular weight compound are known. And its natural properties being available in pure form, nontoxic with a wide spectrum of biological function was found this application in the formation of various medicinal properties. The variation in the types and time of detention of the phytochemical compounds, recorded an 80 chemical compound including fifty chemical compounds in the leaves extract and 40 chemical compounds in the flowers extract. The current results indicate that the methanolic extracts of leaves and flowers of Canna indica L. contains many of the biologically effective secondary metabolites, especially medicinal properties, which can be used to treat many diseases.
