Indian Medicinal Plants: Hypercholesterolemia

Herbs have been used in medical treatment since the beginning of civilization and have become a mainstay of human pharmacotherapy. The World Health organization (WHO) estimates that 80% of the people of developing countries rely on traditional medicines, mostly plant-derived drugs, for their primary health needs. India is well known for its rich traditional systems of medicine, that is, Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani besides a vast reservoir of living traditions of ethnomedicine. Indian medicinal plants have potent effects in treating diseases such as hypercholesterolemia. Based on this, many works were carried out in evaluating the hypocholesterolemic effect of plants and from the reports on their potential effectiveness; it is assumed that the botanicals have a major role to play in the management of hypercholesterolemia. More concentration in evaluating the beneficial effects of medicinal plants certainly will help to utilize the Indian biodiversity and traditional knowledge for prospecting novel compounds as pharmacologically effective products to manage hypercholesterolemia.
