A REVIEW ON PHYTOCHEMICAL AND PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF THESPESIA POPULNEA
Most of the drugs available today are directly or indirectly derived from plants. The objective of present review is to provide advance information including traditional uses, phyotochemical, Pharmacognostic and pharmacological of Thespesia populnea for easy access of researchers intending to work on the wide range of active chemical constituents in this plant. A fast growing ever green shrub native to saline, sandy, volcanic, limestone and rocky soils especially in tropical and subtropical areas could be seen anywhere and easy to propagate and grow. Its activity spectrum ranges from memory enhancing to cytotoxic to immunmodulatory to antidiuretic. Here we discussed the latest development in the activities of different parts of the plant T. populnea.
