Abstract:


Several lipid-based nanophytomedicines for illustrations, solid lipid nanoparticles, nanocomposites, lipid carriers, phytosomes, cubosomes, nanoemulsions, microcapsules, ethosomes, etc., are exploited to enhance the efficacy and safety of various bioactive phytochemicals with respect to their delivery to therapeutic target sites. Less lipid solubility, week stability, complex moiety, and inadequate metabolism in the gut are approximate of the serious problems of phytomedicine that have been emphasized extremely. In addition, these help design therapeutically efficacious and active nanophytomedicines. Disease diagnosis and compound imaging have also become important applications of nano-phytomedicine now. The aim of this review is to provide the current progress of lipid-based nanophytomedicines for the treatment of various life-threatening diseases and their theranostic applications.

Keywords:

Nanophytomedicines, bioactive phytochemicals, theranostic, efficacy, Lipids, Neurological disorders.
