Herbal medicine is also called botanical medicine or phytotherapy (from Greek phytos = plant). Herbal medicine is a medicinal preparation made from a plantand can include the fresh or dried herb or herb part, whole, chopped or powdered or an advanced form of the herb usually made via extraction by a solvent suchas water, ethanol, or an organic solvent (e.g., acetone). Such advanced herbal preparations, often processed in a way that establishes relatively fixed chemicalbe chosen either because they are “marker compounds”, specific or characteristic of a particular genus or species of plant or because they are scientificallyactive compounds, as they contribute significantly to the preparation’s specific physiological activity. Marker compounds may be active or inert, and cancontribute to physiological activity other than the primary intended use of the extract. Advanced herbal products, usually, but not always, as standardizedextracts, are often referred to as phytomedicines.
