Cardioprotective Mechanism of Chemical Constituents of Medicinal Plant: A Brief Review

Plants are a key source of food for humans. Plants have been utilised for therapeutic reasons since the dawn of time. Because of their capacity to preserve injured cells in heart muscle, scientists must explore the processes of chemical compounds in plants, notably saponins and cardiac glycosides. Searching databases including Google Scholar, Medline, PubMed, and the Directory of Open Access Journals turned up articles detailing medicinal plants’ cardioprotective mechanisms. Chemical compounds in plants such as saponin, flavonoids, glycosides, steroid, alkaloids, tannin, phenol, phlobatanin, terpenoids, and anthraquinone promote cardioprotective function and minimise cardiac abnormalities. The current review article discusses the use of medicinal plants, particularly for the treatment of cardiac disorders, as well as a research of molecules/phytoconstituents as plant secondary metabolites for their cardioprotective potential. Chemical compounds of herbal or traditional plants can be lifesaving in chronic cardiac conditions, according to the major goal of this review.
