  • Abstract: The phytochemistry and therapeutic potential of plants are thoroughly examined in this article. It looks at historical applications, methods of extraction, and analytical approaches to determine the phytochemical components. The many groups of compounds—terpenoids, flavonoids, phenolics, and alkaloids, among others—are explained along with their pharmacological properties. There is discussion of therapeutic uses in the treatment of diseases like cancer, heart problems, diabetes, and neurological conditions. The review emphasizes how important clinical trials and scientific validation are for proving safety and efficacy. It also discusses issues with regulatory frameworks, quality assurance, and standardization. This study highlights the importance of medicinal plants as sources of innovative therapeutic molecules and provides future research and development directions by combining current knowledge.
