Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis was employed to quantitatively study some elemental contents of some medicinal plants used for the treatment of various ailments in Ghana. The accuracy and precision of the method were guaranteed by analyzing certified reference materials under the same conditions as the samples. Various elements of biological importance for human metabolism were found to be present in varying concentrations. Potentially toxic element when exceeding RDI, Al, was also detected in the medicinal plants considered in this study. The concentrations of the various elements in the medicinal plants have been discussed in detail.
