Abstract

The plants are used to promote health and also used for the treatment of various diseases for mankind nowadays. But, the plant-based drugs which are recently identified or researched by the modern framework, are more reliable and beneficial for clinical use. The plant “Elderberry” (Sambucus nigra) is the best source to extract proteins and its extractsare being used for multi-purpose activities including treatment of cardiovascular diseases,good impact on the immune system, antitumor activity and are also used for UV rays protection, etc. A very simple and environmentally friendly method is applied for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles by using European black elderberry(Sambucus nigra).By this,the extraction of different fruits was developed.Thousands of plant species are growing worldwide which have medicinal use and contain different active constituents that have a direct effect or action on the human body. This article gives an overview of the key concepts based on the pharmacological profile of Sambucus nigra.
