Abstract


The medicinal plants are important source for pharmaceutical manufacturing. Medicinal plants & herbal medicines account for a significant percentage of the pharmaceutical market. There is increasing awareness and general acceptability of the use of herbal drugs in today’s medical practice although most of these applications are not scientific. Herbal medicines are not a simple task since many factors influence the biological efficacy and Reproducible therapeutic effect. So it is necessary to improve safety of herbal drugs by developing certain quality control parameters and by following the WHO guidelines for herbal medicine WHO specific criteria for assessing the safety, efficacy, and quality of herbal medicines are critical for global harmonisation. The term “standardisation” refers to the assurance of a drug’s identification, quality, and purity at all stages of its life cycle. This study examines the need for and breadth of herbal medicine standardisation techniques for optimal quality assurance.To provide a platform for the quality control of traditional herbal medicines and to discover novel therapeutics composed of multiple chemical compounds, it is necessary to combine chemistry, pharmacology, medicine, and even statistics.
