This paper deals with the morphological and anatomical features of Cassia senna leaf, Chicorium intybus leaf and F. vulgare fruits. The aim of this research was to define concrete diagnostic parameters permitting detection of adulterants in commercial samples of a slimming herbal preparation (Royal Regime Tea, RRT). A Leica microscope was used for the identification of the different diagnostic characters of the ingredients and the preparation. Anatomical study of each ingredient of RRT and quantitative microscopy of C. senna leaf, C. intybus leaf and F. vulgare fruits was performed for the authentication of the three plant tissues. The physical constant values was determined for RRT and the ingredients and compared with the known standard values in the literature. Moisture, dry matter, crude protein, ether extract, crude fiber, ash values and mineral contents passed the pharmacopeia standard for ingredients.
