    Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the cytotoxic effects of Aloe vera and neem herbal formulation using silver nanoparticles. Introduction: The changing lifestyle as well as the food habits has resulted in the introduction of numerous diseases in the past few decades. Moreover, by the passing day, we are becoming more aware about the drug resistance that is developed in most of the disease-causing pathogens. In this scenario, bringing more herbal medicines into the market is the only way to improve the situation. Moreover, neem and A. vera already being proven about its antioxidant as well as many other medicinal properties were taken to check the cytotoxic effects along with the help of silver nanoparticles. Materials and Methods: In this study we have collected Aloe vera and Azadirachta indica and silver nanoparticles were synthesized using an herbal formulation. Finally the cytotoxic effects of silver nanoparticles investigated using brine shrimp lethality assay. Results: The silver nanoparticles can be synthesized using herbal formulation using A. vera and A. indica. Conclusion: The silver nanoparticles synthesized using herbal formulation of A. vera and A. indica have cytotoxic effects.
