Abstract
A broad range of health-care practices is required to exploit the beneficial effects of Ayurveda, which is the most ancient system of medicines. Being the essence of Ayurvedic medicines, Indian medicinal plants manifest miraculous effects in curing a vast range of diseases and disorders among humans and can be better called as “elixirs of life.” Some of the medicinal plants valued in Ayurvedic Rasayana for their therapeutic potential have been scientifically investigated with promising results. A number of plant-based principles have been isolated with potential immunomodulatory activity that can explain and justify their use in traditional medicine in the past and can form the basis for further research in the future as well. Currently, there is much growing interest in the use of these medicinal plants as modulators of the complex immune system. Hence, this review of literature study was conducted with the main purpose to delineate the role and mechanism of action of phytoactives of medicinal plants in augmentation of immune system. This scientific evidences and comprehensive pharmaco-dynamic knowledge related to medicinal plants could help researchers to design clinical trials. Furthermore, integration of this concept would certainly help to develop the drug therapy in the near future.
