Abstract

Herbal medicine is the oldest form of health care system known to mankind. Herbs had been used by all cultures throughout history. Herbs are the potential source of chemical constituents which have high therapeutic value. Herbal medicines are now in great demand in the developing world for primary health care not because they are inexpensive but also for better cultural acceptability, better compatibility with the human body and minimal side effects. It is estimated, that approximately one quarter of prescribed drugs contain plant extracts or active ingredients obtained from the plant substances. This review summarizes the research carried out on the plant Cleome viscosa. Cleome viscosa which belongs to family cappardaceae is an annual herb, commonly known as wild or dog mustard.
