Hepatobiliary diseases include a heterogeneous group of diseases of the liver and biliary system affecting more than 50% population ranging from Non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases, gall stone, hepatitis to hepato-cellular carcinoma. Ayurveda has been using to treat several liver ailments, but its efficiency is poorly documented by means of scientific studies. High number of Aurveda liver tonics has been prescribing for chronic liver diseases and G.I. disorders. Thirteen classical Ayurveda formulations and eight medicinal plants mostly used by Ayurveda were reviewed along with scientific studies. Arogyavardhini vati is highest prescribing medicine in liver disorders. Haridra, Katuki, chireeta, punnanava, kiratatikta, Bhumi amalaki are commonest single herb used by the herbalist and Ayurveda physician in the treatment of Jaundice and other liver disorders. Many grey areas of hepato billiary disorders can be addressed through scientific research in Ayurveda.
