Abstract: In recent years, focus on plant research has increased all over the world and a large body of evidence has been collected to show immense potential of medicinal plants used in various traditional systems. Medicinal plants constitute a source of both traditional and modern medicines. Natural compounds that reduce the chemical activating enzymes might be good candidates for protecting against chemically induced toxicity. Herbal medicines derived from plant extract, are increasingly being utilized to treat a wide variety of clinical diseases, with relatively little knowledge of their modes of action. About 80% of the rural population depends on it as primary health care. With the introduction of sophisticated techniques, scientists started exploring the plant flora for active constituents. In 1803 morphine, a crystalline alkaloid was isolated from opium poppy papaver somniferum that still remains a priced drug in medicine as analgesic. Later on antitussive alkaloid, codeine was isolated and it proved the fact that a medicinal herb can exert different pharmacological activities due to the presence of number of constituents. Later on drugs like atropine, arecoline, muscarine and hyoscine were purified from the plant extracts for medicinal applications. A large number of medicinal plants and their purified constituents have been shown beneficial therapeutic potentials. The oil and seed constituent of the plant Nigella Sativa contain active constituent Thymoquinine possessing anti-oxidant activity. To explore thepossibility of using the traditional medicine with proper chemical and pharmacological profile, in recent days, there has been a large volume of work aimed at scientific validation of efficacy of herbal drugs used in the traditional medicine. The modern medicine does not have suitable answer for many conditions such as liver disorder, asthma, cardio vascular disorder etc.
