    Nanotechnology Improves the Activity of Herbal Medicines
    Author(s): Kezhong Zhang*

    Phytochemicals, also known as secondary metabolites, are plant-produced substances that have been shown to have a wide range of biological activities, providing a scientific basis for the use of herbs in traditional medicine.Furthermore, the use of herbs is thought to be safer and less expensive than synthetic medicine.Herbal medicines, on the other hand, have drawbacks such as low solubility, stability, and bioavailability. Some of them can degrade physically and chemically, reducing their pharmacological activity. Nanotechnology-based herbal drug formulations have attracted attention in recent decades due to their increased activity and potential for overcoming the problems associated with herbal medicine. Approaches that use biocompatible, biodegradable nanotechnology-based delivery systems based on lipids, polymers, or nanoemulsions can improve the solubili.. Read More»
