Medicinal plants have been used for thousands of years for the treatment of numerous diseases becoming an important source in the search for new drugs. Among the substances, palmatine, arising from natural sources, an alkaloid has been investigated with regard to their pharmacological actions and has demonstrated promising activity for the treatment of various diseases highlighting Alzheimer's disease (AD). The aim of this study was to verify the state of the art and technique on palmatine with…
