Abstract

The standardization of herbal drugs is a critical aspect of modern healthcare, ensuring the safety, efficacy, and quality of these natural products. Herbal drugs, derived from plant sources, have gained popularity for their potential therapeutic benefits. However, their variable composition and lack of consistent quality have raised concerns. This article explores the significance of standardization in the realm of herbal drugs, emphasizing its role in enhancing safety, regulatory compliance, and research reliability. We delve into the core components of herbal drug standardization, including plant identification, authentication, quality control, phytochemical analysis, and safety testing. Various methods and techniques employed in the standardization process, such as pharmacopoeias, chromatography, spectroscopy, and DNA barcoding, are discussed in detail.

While highlighting the progress made in herbal drug standardization, we also acknowledge the challenges posed by variability in plant sources and the importance of global harmonization efforts. As technology continues to advance, new opportunities emerge for improving the standardization of herbal drugs.

This article underscores the essential role of standardization in harnessing the therapeutic potential of herbal drugs while ensuring their safety and efficacy, paving the way for their integration into modern healthcare practices.
