Title : The role of medicinal plants in our immune system


To strengthen the immune systems, people must be urged to take vitamins. The best way to boost our immune systems naturally is by using medicinal plants and herbs. The Vedas and Samhita contain numerous references to medicinal plants and their use, which originate from between 3500 BCE and 800 BCE. India is well known for its ethnobotanical endeavours. The "Vrikshayurveda," which is discussed in Vedic writings including the Atharvaveda and the Rigveda, is where the first mention of herbal medicine may be found. Ayurveda is a conventional herbal medicine practise, with roots in the Indus Valley between 3300 and 1300 BCE. The roots of the name are "Ayur" and "Veda," which combined denote wisdom and life. Studies on plants' anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities are important since they can be used to benefit human health. The herbal medicines have a social relevance because they are freely accessible, helpful to the underprivileged and tribal groups. Additionally, it is known that herbal products with a variety of healthpromoting properties, such as anti-inflammatory properties, are safe to use with no major adverse effects. Plants are a priceless, extraordinary, and traditional source of medicines that can treat a variety of disorders. The majority of medications used as herbal treatments for health care, illness prevention, and treatment have been derived from plants since ancient times. The majority of plants' medicinal properties have been attributed to their secondary metabolites. A multidisciplinary strategy incorporating botanical, ethnobotanical, phytochemical, and biological approaches is used in plant drug development. According to the WHO, over 75 percent of the world's population relies on traditional medicine. There is a long history of them being used as folk medicines and traditional medicines for medical purposes all throughout the world. As a result, herbal treatments have been utilised for millennia due to their security, effectiveness, lack of negative side effects, and cultural acceptability. Plants and their derivatives are harmless, there has been continuing usage of plant products as drugs as an alternative method of treating patients since ancient times. According to recent studies on natural treatments, a variety of herbs have complex effects on immune function and act at various points in the entire cascade of immunological reactions. These herbs may function as significant immune boosters. Generally speaking, we depend on plants and products derived from plants to maintain strong immune systems. This paper focuses on five essential medicinal herbs that the people typically employ to boost their immunity.
