Medicinal plants have been known for millennia and are highly esteemed all over the world as a rich source of therapeutic agents for the prevention of diseases and ailments. Herbs have been the highly esteemed source of medicine throughout human history. They are widely used today indicating that herbs are a growing part of modern, high-tech medicine.

The Indian system of medicine in Ayurveda along with classic texts like Bhaishajya Ratnavali has a long-standing tradition that offers a unique insight into a comprehensive approach to asthma management through proper care of the respiratory tract. Ayurvedic formulations used in the management of asthma, therefore, judiciously combine herbs to support the physiology of respiration, these herbs apart from exerting bronchial action also possess concomitant properties like antioxidant to support the digestive, cardiac, nerve functions and expectorant as well as just plain soothing herbs.
