Standardization, Phytochemistry, Therapeutic Efficacy, Chemical Constituents


Herbal formulations are widely accepted as a therapeutic agents for several diseases. The development of authentic analytical methods which can reliably identifies the phytochemical composition, including quantitative analyses of marker/bioactive compounds and other major constituents, is a major challenge to scientists. Standardization is an important parameter for the establishment of a consistent biological activity or simply to maintain the quality of production and manufacturing of herbal drugs. This review covers various standardization parameter according to herbal monograph and elucidated in most comprehensive way to support the researcher in herbal formulation and characterization.
