Abstract
Liver, being an important body organ, plays a vital role in metabolism. A great challenge to health care professionals and
pharmaceutical industries is to deal with liver injuries and other liver disorders. Multiple factors (Biological, chemical, drug overdose)
are associated with liver disorders. Synthetic pharmaceutical drugs which are generally applied for its treatment further accelerate
the disorders. In this situation, a great reliance has been evident on natural products which seem promising in dealing with liver

compiling the data of some important medicinal plant which have been studied during last ten years worldwide with proven
hepatoprotective activity.
