    An ulcer is an erosion in the lining of the stomach or duodenum. An ulcer in the stomach is called a gastric ulcer and that ulcer in the duodenum is called a duodenal ulcer. Together, ulcers of the stomach and duodenum are referred to as peptic ulcers. Peptic ulcer disease, encompassing gastric and duodenal ulcers, is the most prevalent gastrointestinal disorder. Generation of free radicals, decrease in mucosal defensive factor or increase in mucosal injurious factors causes peptic ulcer. Hence, through this review, we explore the possibility about some plants and their constituents that may be used in treatment or prevention of peptic ulcer. Peptic ulcer, usually occurs due to poor recreation, little rest, and lack of physical exercise, due to the consumption of chocolates, candies, coffee, cigarettes, alcohol, stress causing segregation of acid in the stomach, due to the consumption of antacid medications, and due to side effects that can cause constipation such as baking soda, white soda, alkalizing products, magnesium, and aluminum hydroxide. The present study was aimed to elaborate on various herbs such as Aloe vera, Azadirachta indica, Carica papaya Linn., Allium sativum, and Mangifera indica which are used in treating peptic ulcer in various parts of the world.
