Author(s): Abdul Qudoos and Ismail Bayram
Abstract: In the contemporary world due to technological development the human life has become vulnerable and more at risk because now the diseases are more complicated. Similarly the causative agents, particularly the viruses, have now become more complex due to mutation of their genetic material that results in more resistant and virulent strains. So to counter these diseases a strong immune system is required which can save the living body. Since medieval times the plants have been the main source of food, shelter, and to treat different diseases as well as enhancing the immunity status of both humans and animals. In every civilization the plant-based medicines or phytomedicine have been an important part of first aid. This review elaborates the importance of phytogenic substances i.e. myrtle plant and Nigella sativa by exerting positive effects on metabolism and particularly enhancing the immunity of rats which is used as a human model.
