Abstract
HERBS AND PHYTOCHEMICALS WITH ANTIPARKINSONIAN ACTIVITY

Rakesh K. Goyal* and Janardhan Singh

ABSTRACT

Parkinson’s disease, a most common neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by bradykinesia, muscular rigidity, tremors and impairment of postural balance. Pathophysiology of the disease is not clear so far. Conventional drugs (levodopa / carbidopa, catechol o-methyl transferase (COMT) inhibitors, monoamine oxidase- B (MAO-B) inhibitors, etc) fail to cure the disease and can cause motor fluctuations (on/off phenomenon) along with other serious side effects. Herbal plants and their phytochemicals might potentially offer a novel neuroprotective approach; and are reported to produce beneficial effects in this disease. The present review describes some plants and their extracts & phytochemicals exhibiting beneficial pharmacological properties relevant to Parkinson’s disease treatment.

Keywords: Parkinsonism, Medicinal plants, Levo dopa, Macuna pruriens, Genistein.
