Abstract

Herbs and herbal derivatives are of great research interest owing to their wide applications in therapeutics.
Several folk evidences have been recorded in the formulations of ancient world’s medicinal system, which have attracted researchers for their scientific validation. Various herbal compounds has been identified and showed their therapeutic efficiency against pathophysiological conditions. Employing these herbal compounds for synthesizing nanoparticles for biomedical applications have been ventured in recent times. Green synthesis is the procedure of synthesizing nanoparticles from herbal/ biogenic resources and several metallic nanoparticles have been synthesized by this process. The metal nanoparticle-herb combination may show better efficacy against different pathophysioloical conditions. This review tries to put forward the different metal nanoparticles formed from different herbal resources and their role in health and diseases. Although green synthesis of nanoparticle is an emerging area of research but very few data are available regarding their physiological effects, compatibility and toxicity. This review is an effort to elaborate in detail the role of medicinally important herbs in synthesizing metal nanoparticles, their physiological compatibility and therapeutic efficacy. Further, considerations and discussions are also made on limitations (toxicity) of the green synthesis of nanoparticles along with their future prospects in health and diseases. This review opens door to a completely new dimension in medicinal plant research combining the nanotechnology with herbs i.e. Herbonanoceuticals.
