Abstract

Traditionally, ethnomedicine plays a vital role for curing various diseases in Asian nation's specially rural and ethnic peoples for its lucrative and ease of use. For primary health care, 70-80% of the peoples in the developing countries rely on medicinal plant and the tendency of using ethnomedicine was also gradually increasing in the developed countries as it has almost no side effect. Traditional medicine plays an important role in the management of reproductive health problems of the Asian native population due to socioeconomic and geographical factors. Recently, attention of many pharmaceutical companies and researchers has been focused on medicinal plants, especially dietary products, as a wealthy resource for drug discovery and development because of the merit of diversified health benefits and therapeutic potentialities due to the presence of pharmacologically active compounds. Here, we benchmark the traditional herbal remedies for treatment of reproductive disorders to both human and animals with their identified molecular mechanisms and possibilities of further research as candidate for future drug discovery and development.
