A new receipe consisting of Phyllanthus fraternus Webster, Eclipta alba and curcumin was prepared. The efficacy of this preparation was tested in carbontetrachloride (CCl 4 ) induced fatty liver model in rats. This preparation was able to normalize the level of lipids accumulating in liver due to CCl 4  injury and it was also able to bring down elevated levels of serum bilirubin. Further, the decreased levels of serum triglycerides, pre B-lipoproteins and cholesterol in CCl 4  liver injured rats was raised after treatment with new preparation. Further, the decreased level of liver glycogen was also normalized. From these results, it can be inferred that the new receipe is able to offer protection against the liver injury caused by CCl 4  injection.
