The aim of current research is to determine and characterize the concentration level of heavy metals in the leaves, roots and seeds of medicinal plant Moringa stenopetala. The samples of roots ,seeds and leaves were collected from different sites of Wolaita Zone depending on the bioavailability of the plant. wet digestion method is used to optimize the working sample. The AAS determination method was used to characterize the concentration level of heavy metals. The data was analyzed by using one way Anova to find correlations and recovery test. The findings show that all the determined metals were within the WHO limit.
