Introduction: India has an ancient heritage of herbal medicine. Materia medica of India provides lots of information on the folklore practices and traditional aspects of therapeutically important herbal medicines. Indian traditional medicine is based on various systems including Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani. Evaluation of these drugs is mostly based on phytochemical, pharmacological and allied approaches including various instrumental techniques like chromatography, microscopy and others1. During the last decade, the use of traditional medicine has expanded globally and is gaining popularity. It has continued to be used not only for primary health care of the poor in developing countries, but also in countries where conventional medicine is predominant in the national health care system2. According to WHO, herbal medicines serve the health needs of about 80% of the world’s population, especially for millions of people in the vast rural areas of developing countries3. International market of herbal medicine is over US $ 60 billion per year which is growing at a rate of 7 %. The herbal drug market in India is about Rs. 644.63 crores and it can be raised to Rs. 3000 crores by 2006. The growing demand for plant based medicine, health products and pharmaceuticals etc. led to the depletion of plant resources4.
