    Introduction: Nanoparticles hold properties such as stability, reactivity, and physicochemical properties and measured in the range of 1–100 nm. They have a high surface area-to-volume ratio. And hence, it is a growing field in the modern era of sciences. Copper nanoparticles have certain special features functioning as less toxic, heat transfer properties, low cost, high friction of atoms, and as high surface area-to-volume ratio due to their size, shape, morphology, crystalline phase, and composition. The plant Asparagus racemosus is referred as the “Queen of Herbs” in ayurvedic health system as it treats various diseases. The current study evaluates the anti-inflammatory properties of A. racemosus extract, the green synthesis, characterization of CuNPs, and screening of their cytotoxic activity. Aim: The aim of the present study is to assess the anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activity of A. racemosus mediated copper nanoparticles and considering the efficacy of A. racemosus mediated copper nanoparticles. Materials and Methods: The methodology includes the green synthesis of A. racemosus mediated copper nanoparticles followed by the tests for anti-inflammatory and cytotoxicity activity. Results: The anti-inflammatory action and cytotoxicity activity are highly significant and its efficiency increases with increase in the concentration. Conclusion: A. racemosus mediated copper nanoparticles showed expressive anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activity and hence they can be used as a potent anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic agents.
