Abstract

Thyme is a perennial aromatic herbaceous plant for medicinal, culinary, and for ornamental purposes. Thymus vulgaris is the most prevalent species. Thyme is a member of the genus, Thymus, of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Thyme leaves are one of the richest sources of metallic elements, iron, calcium, manganese, metallic element, and antioxidants. Phenols are the main synthetic resin element that is primarily blamed for antioxidant activity. The oil of thyme, the oil of Thymus vulgaris (Thymus vulgaris), contains 20-50% thymol, thymol is one of all naturally occurring categories of compounds referred to as biocides, substances that will destroy harmful organisms. Prior to the introduction of modern antibiotics, thyme oil was used to treat bandages. Thyme has chemical constituents like Thymol, carvacrol, linalool, apigenin, eugenol, and Rosmarinic acid has antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, antiallergic, antimutant, antioxidative properties. Thyme is packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, and a decent supply of vitamin A. Another health advantage of thyme is that it also has a decent supply of copper, fiber, iron, and metallic element. Traditionally Thymus linearis Benth is used for the treatment of assorted diseases as well as high blood pressure. Thyme extract supplementation magnified endurance exercise tolerance in intact animals. Thyme also has a significant antithrombotic effect.
