Lecture Note

Medicinal plants are those plants that are commonly used in treating and preventing specific ailments and diseases that are generally considered to be harmful to humans. Since the dawn of human history, man has relied so much on medicinal plants for health and food needs. Medicinal plants have been used not just for curing and preventing illnesses, but also for the promotion of both physical and spiritual well-being among people in all cultures and almost every household.
When a plant is designated as medicinal, it means that the plant is useful as a drug or an active ingredient of a drug. It has been proven that although the effects of natural remedies may seem slower, the results are sometimes better on the long run, especially in chronic diseases.
