The traditional medicine system is gaining wider popularity in the present times leading to increase in its commercialization at an international level. Ayurveda can serve as an excellent template for the development of nanomedicine for human theragnostics. Nanoparticals are colloidal systems with particles verying in size from 10 nm to 100 nm. The nano formulations are reportated to have remarkable advantages over respective crude drugs preparations and conventional formulations of plant actives or extracts which includes enhancement of solubility, bioavaibility, protection from toxicity, enhancement of pharmacological activity, reduction in dose enhancement of stability, improved tissue macrophages distribution, sustained delivery and protection from physical and chemical degradation. The present study shows that traditional medicines may hold strong relevance in the emerging era of nanomedicine. Thus nano sized novel drug delivery system of herbal drugs has a potential future for enhancing the activity and overcoming problem associative with herbals.
