Medicinal Plants of Uzbekistan and Their Traditional Uses

  • Dilfuza Egamberdieva
  • Dilfuza Jabborova


Uzbekistan is known throughout the world for its rich history of herbal plants and their use in traditional medicine. Uzbekistan significantly surpasses other regions of the world in terms of the endemism and species richness found in this country. These plants are a source for biologically active compounds that are used in pharmacological tests, with a high probability of new drug discovery. Pharmacological studies have confirmed that plant extracts and individual compounds have various biological activities such as hepatoprotective, dermatological, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-ulcer, antioxidant, neuroprotective, and antiinflammatory properties. In the present review, an attempt was made to provide an up-to-date report on the diversity of medicinal plants widely used in Uzbekistan and their pharmacological properties. The present report can be useful for the continuous investigation of the Uzbek with the aim of obtaining new biologically active compounds.
