Native to India, Murraya koenigii (Curry Leaves/Kadi Patta/Mitha Nimba/Giri Nimba) is found almost anywhere in Indian subcontinent, except the higher Himalayan levels. There are several diseases that protect components (natural compounds) in the curry tree that can be used as a natural compound. A source for the manufacture of modern, complementary and revolutionary medicines. Traditionally it is used as an antiemetic, antidiarrheal, febrifuge and blood purifier. The entire plant is known to be a tonic and a stomach. As anantioxidant, anti-diabetic, antibacterial, antihypertensive, cytotoxic and also in the treatment of respiratory problems in the bronchial system. In curry and other dishes, the leaves are traditionally used as a seasoning. Curry leaves are useful for hair because they are high in beta-carotene and protein content, which are instrumental in preventing hair loss and hair thinning. Proteins are necessary for hair growth because hair is made of protein and is also vital for hair development. The amino acid content that strengthens hair fibre is also high in curry leaves. It is important to compile the well-known pharmacology and phytochemistry of M. koenigii and the therapeutic potential of this plant in the form of a study.
