Abstract

Medicinal plants have bioactive compounds i.e. phytochemicals which are used for curing various human disease. Phytochemicals have two categories i.e., primary and secondary constituents. Primary constituents have chlorophyll, proteins, sugar and amino acids. Secondary constituents contain terpenoids and alkaloids. Medicinal plants have antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities. The present study involves ten different medicinal plants.
