    Nanotechnology is the newly emerging science in the medical field similarly Ayurvedic medications and therapies are getting in trend due to their safety and efficacy. However, delivery of Ayurvedic drugs requires modification for their global acceptance because traditional formulations are not preferred by the patients due to their dose, palatability, and mode of administration. Besides, these formulations have also been reported to have drawbacks related to bioavailability and stability. Hence, Ayurvedic formulations should be improved to address all such drawbacks. Moreover, application of nanocarriers for the delivery of Ayurvedic drugs can be a great initiative because such carriers are capable to cross the plasma membrane and deliver the drug in the desired concentration at the specific site of action. Integration of Ayurveda and nanotechnology may provide the best medicines to treat various life-threatening diseases. This review will cover recent developments in nanotechnology for drug delivery of Ayurvedic drugs and formulations.
