ABSTRACT

Traditional medicines are becoming popular as remedies for diseases among a vast majority of the world’s population. Many traditional formulations are being used as promising nootropics, anti-diabetics, hepato-protective, lipid-lowering, anti-rheumatic agents, etc. The popularity of traditional medicines is due to many reasons. A strong widespread belief of safety is one such reason. Besides, there are several diseases for which there is no satisfactory cure in conventional medicine and suffering people look towards knowledge from traditional medicine to find cures. Broad spectrum anti-microbial resistance by micro-organism and adverse drug reactions are the other factors for the widespread popularity of traditional systems of medicines.
