ABSTRACT:
Traditional medicine is a set of knowledge, abilities, and procedures based on assumptions, beliefs, and experiences of traditional societies to preserve their health. Many rural or indigenous people in many undeveloped nations place a high importance on traditional herbal remedies. Andrographis paniculata Wall (family Acanthaceae) is a common medicinal plant that has been used for millennia in Asia, America, and Africa to treat a variety of maladies including cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, ulcer, leprosy, bronchitis, skin diseases, flatulence, colic, influenza, dysentery, dyspepsia, and malaria. It contains several photochemical compounds that have distinct and intriguing biological effects. To bridge the gap for future research prospects, this study discusses the past and present state of research on Andrographis paniculata in terms of medicinal usage, phytochemistry, pharmacological activities, toxicity profile, and therapeutic usage. This assessment is based on a review of the literature in scientific journals and books obtained from libraries and electronic sources. Natural therapeutic properties are just one benefit of medicinal plants; they also provide disease prevention. In this concise overview study research, we are trying to summarize, aggregate the number of plants, and identify their ethnopharmacological properties.
