ABSTRACT:
Medicinal plants have been used as a source of medicine in all cultures therefore it plays an important role in public health, especially in developed and developing countries. Medicinal Plants and herbs have been used as flavor and to conserve food, to treat different health issues and diseases. Biological secondary metabolites produced during secondary metabolism are usually posses higher biological properties and used throughout the globe for various purposes, including treatment of infectious diseases. C. argentea has been widely used in traditional medicine. It induces hyperpyrexia of the liver, hepatic asthenia, heat in blood and used to cure several disorders such as fever, diarrhea, piles, bleeding nose, mouth sores, itching, wounds, jaundice, gonorrhea, and has different pharmacological activity such as immunological activity, cytoprotective, inflammation, antioxidant, haematological, anticancer, antimitotic activity, hepatoprotective, antimetastatic, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-diarrhead activity, gynaecologic disorders, anti-urolithiatic, anti-diabetes, immunomodulatory, growth activity anti-infection, anti-oxidant agent. C. argentea contains different secondary metabolites in which saponins, cyclic-peptides, phenols, and minerals are the main pharmacological active agents and triterpenoid saponins, Cycpeptide and betalains are the promising targets for further studies due to their bioactivities. Proper and systematic study of more promising bioactive chemical class of compounds or individual compounds should be done by using bioactivity-guided isolation strategies. This is one of the plant which does not have any serious side effects or marked toxicity.
