Abstract(RBIP-106)

Phytopharmaceuticals are pharmaceuticals using traditional compounds derived from botanicals instead of chemicals. Natural ingredients are more easily and more readily metabolized by the body. Therefore they produce fewer, if any, side effects and provide increased absorption in the bloodstream resulting in more thorough and effective treatments. Pharmaceuticals made from synthetic compounds are prone to adverse side effects. The human body will have a tendency to reject certain synthetic compounds which do not occur naturally. These rejections occur in the form of side effects; some as mild as minor headaches, and others as severe as to be potentially lethal. It is important to note while phytopharmaceuticals produce fewer to no side effects, chemical interactions with other prescription drugs can occur. Herbal medicines for therapeutic purposes have been explicitly used since the dawn of human civilization to maintain health and to treat diseases. WHO estimates that about three-quarters of the world's population currently uses herbs and other forms of traditional medicines for mitigation and/cure of various ailments. Even as we commence in the new century with its exciting prospects of gene therapy, herbal medicines hold a major forte as a form of therapy for a substantial percentage of world population. Reproducible efficacy and safety of phytopharmaceuticals is based on reproducible quality.
