  • Abstract

    Analgesic is any drug that relieves pain selectively without blocking the conduction of nerve impulses, markedly altering sensory perception, or affecting consciousness. Plants are rich source of analgesics. Herbal analgesics are considered superior to pharmacological painkillers because they do not carry the same side effects. Some of the herbal analgesics are discussed here. Mentha piperita is a herbal plant which has analgesic property. In Adhatoda vasica Linn., ethanolic extract acts an analgesic. In Lotus seeds, Nelumbo nucifera, methanolic extract has the analgesic property. Aegle marmelos is a natural analgesic, where a methanolic extract of leaves (Fitoterapia) is used as analgesics. In Guiera senegalensis Gmel, the aqueous extract serves as an analgesic. The plant remedies are more safe to the patients with less side effects. Plants with analgesic property have very good therapeutic potential in various pain disorders. The plants discussed in this article are with proven in vitro and in vivo analgesic potential. As plant products have minimum side effects compared to currently used opioid and non-opioid analgesics, proper formulations prepared from this plants may be useful in the future. The aim of this article is to compile and review various studies done on plants with analgesic properties.
