Abstract

Moringa oleifera Lam commonly called horse-radish is a pan-tropical species which is abundantly found in now become naturalized Asia Minor, Africa, the Indian subcontinent (Bangladesh, India & Pakistan). It has been used due to its excellent nutritional value in all its parts, It also offers various medical benefits. Traditionally it is used for treating various ailments.M. oleifera possess several phytoconstituents which are of interest because of their medicinal value. Extensive scientific investigations have been carried over in past decades to give evidence to claimed traditional and folklore uses. Many Pharmacological works have undertaken to screen its various parts fordigestive disorders, heart complaints, antioxidant, fevers, inflammation,antihypertensive, analgesic,diuretic anti-inflammatory,and anti-tumor activities.Additionally, all parts of M. oleifera claimed some beneficial use which gave great value to the plant.This review provides latest compilation of the published scientific evidence on Pharmacological activities of Extracts and nanoparticles.
