The ancient herbalists believed that herbs were the only solutions to cure different chronic and acute diseases. Since then, studies and research on plants metabolites got huge importance to overcome health issues in human and animals. Moreover, with the passage of time synthetic drugs were introduced in medicinal world that had the ability to cure health immediately. However, the synthetic drugs are not free from side effects which cause not only illnesses but also worsening them. One of the major side effects of synthetic drugs include resistance to the medicine. This is the turning point for the medicinal world to get back to the herbal medicine.
