Abstract

Medicinal herbs having a great role in human health care and welfare services. These herbs widely used in Ayurveda, Homeopathic and Allopathic system having various therapeutic properties.

Chemical study reveals that J.regia L. contains Juglone, Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Saponins, Polyphenols, Polyunsaturated fatty acids, Oleic acids, Linoleic acids, Proteins, Napthaquinones, Ascorbic acid, Sitosterol, Tannins. Walnut contains different nutritional components like Carbohydrates, Proteins, Dietary fibres, Iron, Phosphorus, vitamin E & C. This plant possess beneficial effects include Antimicrobial, Antioxidant, Anticancer, Antidiabetic, Anthelmintic, Antiinflammatory, Antidepressant, Hepatoprotective, Antiulcer, Antiageing and Hypocholestermic activity and other therapeutic activities. It is believed to be used in Dental plaque, Gingivitis, Oral hygiene, Eczema, Hemorrhoids, Burns, Blood Purifier, Dyeing or Colorant, Antiseptic and Astringent. In the present study, Pharmacognostic and Pharmacological properties of J.regia L. have been discussed. This review highlights the various Ethanobotanical and traditional uses as well as Pharmacognostic and Pharmacological report on J.regia L.
