Natural dosage forms, from vegetation, have been the groundwork for curing human diseases. The history of disease remedies is rooted in the existence of human civilization. The existing day medication system has advanced over the years with the aid of the enduring scientific and observational efforts of researchers; however, the groundwork for its improvement remains rooted in usual medicine. Plant-based drugs which have been used as crudes now serve as the groundwork for advanced drug discovery. The indigenous information of herbal fabrications has been surpassed down from technology to era which has extensively contributed to the development of special typical structures of medicine. This review gives a short account of protein-rich grains which are obtained from plants fabricated with current friendly formulations.
