Although medicinal plants have been used for thousands of years, there are still many issues associate with the quality control, standardization and effectiveness of herbal formulations. Medicinal plants are complex mixtures with frequently unknown active constituents. They are mostly prepared from the crude extracts, not standardized or analysed for the content of the active ingredients. Quality control is difficult, as many factors can influence the final product; i.e. growth conditions of the plant, parts of the plant used, preparation of the plant for use, extraction method, volume of extract used in the final preparation and many others. All of these factors can affect the level of active compound, and therefore the effectiveness of the herbal formulation. It is also difficult to define the active compound in medicinal plant since some constituents might demonstrate significant synergistic effect.
