Abstract:

The use of various herbal remedies and preparations are described throughout human history representing the origin of modern medicine. Herbal medicine is also called botanical medicine or phyto-medicine, and is defined as the use whole plants or part of plants to prevent or treat illness. Medicinal plants constitute an important component of flora and are widely distributed in India. The pharmacological evaluation of substances from plants is an established method for the identification of lead compounds which can leads to the development of novel and safe medicinal agents. The importance of medicinal plants and traditional health systems in solving the health care problems of the world is gaining increasing attention. Because of this resurgence of interest, the research on plants of medicinal importance is growing phenomenally at the international level, often to the detriment of natural habitats and mother populations in the countries of origin. The study on antimicrobial and medicinal values of: Adhatoda vasica (vasaka), Centella asiatica (thankuni), Paederia foetida (gadal), Nyctanthes arbor-tristis (shiuli), will help us to understand their anti-microbial property so that they can be used in more effective and efficient manner for pharmacological purposes.
