Description: The indigenous medicinal plants form an important component of the natural wealth of Pakistan. Many indigenous drugs have been in the use of common man since time immemorial for curing various ailments and thus lessening human suffering, without the actual knowledge of the active ingredient which causes relief. Though the potentialities of some of these drugs have long been established in the Ayurevdic and the Greco-Arab systems of medicine, a systematic research on their physiological products has not been intensively pursued as yet. Some plants, of course, which are of vital importance, have been fully exploited and their utilization in the pharmaceutical industry is well known, but a great majority of them yet remain untouched.
