HYPERICUM OBLONGIFOLIUM CHOISY: A PHARMACOGNOSTIC REVIEWAbstract
Many herbal remedies have been employed in various medical systems to treat and manage different diseases. Medicinal plants and their investigation of the phytoconstituents are much interested in today’s research. Herbal medicine uses medicinal plants for the prevention and treatment of diseases: it ranges from traditional and popular medicines in every country to the use of standardized and titrated herbal extracts. Generally, cultural rootedness enduring and widespread use in a Traditional Medical System may indicate safety, but not efficacy of treatments, especially in herbal medicine where tradition is almost completely based on remedies containing active principles at very low and ultra-low concentrations or relying on magical-energetic principles. Here, this study aims to evaluate the Pharmacognostic parameters and identify the Phytoconstituents. Hypericum oblongifolium (family: Guttiferae) is well known in India and is one of the most versatile medicinal plants having a wide spectrum of biological activity. It is a highly useful and traditionally used medicinal herbaceous plant found in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. The genus Hypericum consists of about 400 species with widespread medicinal applications in various health disorders.
