Abstract

Kidney is the main excretory organ of the body responsible to excrete the waste, undesirable and toxic substances out of the body. A number of drugs are excreted out of the body through kidney, thus it always remains in direct contact with substances of aversive nature which make it susceptible to toxicity and injury as some substances have inherent noxious effect on kidney such as penicillin and some deposits in tubules that impair its function like gentamicin. This is the main lacuna of Western medicine that it provides inarguably relief to the diseased organ but makes some healthy organ diseased. However, in Unani system of medicine many herbs and their formulations are used to cure kidney disorders since millennia without any side effects. So, in this review an attempt has been made to discuss about commonly used nephroprotective agents of Unani system of medicine.
