Nature has always served as mankind's pharmacy for thousands of years.
Plants are known to produce secondary metabolites, these exclusive compounds are primarily not associated with plant growth but rather serve another role of enhancing likelihood of survival.
Plants are fixed at one place, so they are highly dependent on their strength to generate and release these chemical signals into their surroundings for the purposes of communication and defence.
Throughout ancient history, humans have learned to harness this chemical arsenal to serve their own needs. This is most apparent when considering human health and traditional forms of medicine.
Various ancient medicinal texts from different cultures focus heavily on the use of plant ingredients for human health. All include plant-based remedies for a broad number of ailments, many of which could have been attributed to infectious diseases. The tradition of using plants as medicine for the treatment and management of various infectious diseases continues even today, especially in the developing world.
Plants are capable of producing a vast array of structurally diverse compounds, each of which serves a specific role for the plant itself (e.g., defence against phytopathogens). Sometimes, these compounds are also active against human pathogens. There are four major groups of antimicrobial compounds made by plants: phenolics and polyphenols, terpenoids and essential oils, lectins and polypeptides, and alkaloids. In most cases, bioactive plant extracts contain complex mixtures of these groups, and their combined action can yield an enhanced effect. These compounds act on bacteria via a number of mechanisms, including inactivation of proteins, adhesins and enzymes, among other targets.
More recent work has revealed that certain plant compounds can also block cell-to-cell signaling pathways and quench production of virulence factors (e.g., exotoxins) and disrupt or inhibit the formation of biofilms, which confer a protective advantage to pathogens during an infection. It is clear that we have only uncovered the tip of the iceberg in our understanding of the chemical diversity and bioactivity of plant natural products.
Considering the therapeutic benifits of herbs Aimil pharmaceuticals has developed an exclusive formulation Enriched with scientifically validated botanical extracts & micro-nutrients with brand name Fifatrol.
