The liver is an organ of paramount importance and plays an essential role in the metabolism of foreign compounds entering the body. Human beings are being exposed to these compounds through environment exposure, consumption of contaminated food or during exposure to chemical substances in the occupational environment. In addition, human beings consume a lot of synthetic drugs during diseased conditions, which are alien to body organs. Liver diseases remain one of the serious health problems. Conventional drugs used in the treatment of liver diseases are often inadequate. It is therefore necessary to search for alternative drugs for the treatment of liver diseases. Attempts are being made globally to get scientific evidences for these traditionally reported herbal drugs.
