Abstract

Herbal immunomodulators are the substances that can stimulate or suppresses the components of immune system in human. A number of vast research on this area supports thatmany of the chemicals in the form of flavonoids, alkaloids, terpenoids, polysaccharides, lactones, and glycoside products are responsible to cause alterations in the immunomodulatory properties. Plants rich in flavonoids, vitamin C, or the carotenoids can enhance immune function. This can promote the activity of lymphocytes, increase phagocytosis, and induce interferon production. The modulation of immune system by various medicinal plant products has become a subject for scientific research currently worldwide.
