Summary of "Phytoextracts As Antibacterials - A Review."

Botanicals have been cultured to flavour food, to treat health disorders and to put a stop to diseases caused by various microorganisms. The awareness of curative features of different medicinal plants has been spread among human communities. The application of herbal products as antimicrobial agents may be a better choice to the extensive and imprudent use of synthetic antibiotics. World Health Organization recommended traditional medicines as safest remedies for treatment of diseases of microbial origin. The plant extracts are generally non-hazardous, available in plenty at reasonable prices, biodegradable, eco-friendly and show sometimes broad-spectrum activities against different micro organisms. The current knowledge on plant extracts, phytochemicals and their antibacterial activity, target specific mechanism of action, solvents deployed during extraction, properties of active ingredient isolated may obviously help in biological control of bacteria. Antimicrobial properties of different plant parts, which act in a low dose, have been organised separately for easy understanding.
