Faisal Ahmad Lone*, Shamim Ahmad Dar and Ayaz Mahmood Dar
The human existence is insignificant in this world overwhelmed by terrible diseases; thus, one must learn from
nature's agents to create new antidotes for the world's benefit. Medicinal herbs are a better source of these
antidotes. Medicinal herbs have been used for healing since the dawn of time. The link between man and his
search for drugs in nature extends back thousands of years, as evidenced by a variety of sources. Plants produce
many secondary metabolites with a wide range of structures and functions. Natural product structures have a
strong influence in other sectors, with the anti-infective field relying heavily on natural products and their
analogues. The more effective use of natural products can be made through various derivatizations and
modifications through drug development process which will later enhance the efficiency of lead compounds.
