AN OVERVIEW ON CAMELLIA SINENSIS AS ANTIASTHMATICAbstract
The present era aims to use medicinal plants and their constituents to treat various diseases. The synthetic drugs available in the market are associated with various side effects and follow a tedious and time-consuming process to synthesize. Natural drugs are safe and possess a large therapeutic window, thus gaining interest in the present scenario. These natural drugs are lacking in terms of their receptor action, so the present scenario aims to extract the active constituents of herbal drugs and study their profile aiming at a particular disease. In the present review, we presented the antiasthmatic potential of caffeine (extracted from tea leaves) by studying its effect on adenosine receptors. Our main aim is to study the active constituent present in a specific part of the plant to be extracted and used specifically for a specific receptor instead of the whole plant.
