Abstract

Traditional medicinal system relies on the knowledge and clinical expertization of physicians to regulate the indigenous medicinal system for the sake of well being to humans. Considering the bioavailability issues of phytoconstituents, in this review, we have focused on the various aspects of phytosomes in drug delivery. Phytosome technology is used to enhance the absorption of poorly absorbed lipid soluble active constituents from the herb extracts. So, the article covers a brief introduction of phytosomes, their method of development along with its formulation and evaluation parameters such FTIR, NMR etc. Different types of dosages forms are described in the review, merits and demerits are also discussed along with diagrammatic representation of phytosome development technique. So, the article is the direction for future research to increase the absorption of phytoconstituents.

Keywords: Bioavailability, FTIR, lipid, NMR, niosomes, phytoconstituents
