Launaea sarmentosa (Asteraceae) has been extensively used as a nutrient herb in traditional remedies for the treatment of varied diseases. The aim of this study was to produce comprehensive scientific information on photochemistry, ancient uses and medical specialty activities of Launaea sarmentosa. It’s been showed that totally different a part of Launaea sarmentosa species as well as leaves, flowers, seed, root, and aerial half possess ethno botanic values. Launaea sarmentosa for its pharmacognostical and phytochemical characteristics as per Ayurvedic collection of India (API) parameters. Launaea sarmentosa methanolic extract on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) elicited inflammation mistreatment RAW 264.7 macrophages. Launaea sarmentosa (wild) could be an extremely valuable medicinal plant. The leaf explants made micro shoots on MS basal medium once fortified with cytokinins and auxins. Launaea sarmentosa could be a crawl herb, native to coastal areas in India, Africa (east coast, Mauritius, and South Asia etc.
