Anogeissus latifolia: A Recent Update on its Chemistry and Pharmacological Application

Abstract

The present study was undertaken to review current pharmacological activity and chemistry of Anogeissus latifolia. This plant contains a great content of terpenoids and flavanoids which make this a plant with high antioxidant potential. This plant has been evaluated for different pharmacological activity like antimicrobial, anti-ulcer, wound healing and anthelmintic activity. This plant also produces one gum exudate which is commonly known as ghatti gum, and extensively used as polymer in drug development process. Recently this gum has been proved with anti-hyperlipidemic activity.
