Among the selected plants, Kaempferia galanga contain the highest amount of zinc (1.899 ppm) and ferum (17.43 ppm). The herbs Clinacanthus nutans contain the highest amount of calcium (498.0 ppm) and magnesium (234.0 ppm). The highest amount of manganese (13.02 ppm) was found in Melastoma malabathricum.
