Abstract: Anxiety is a psychological disorder characterized by a persistent and disproportionate fear unrelated to any genuine risk. Apart from very few chemical remedies available like benzodiazepines and serotonin modulators, not much treatment options are at hand that could safely and effectively alleviate anxiety. The present paper discusses anti-anxiety potential of 56 plants with emphasis on their pre-clinical and clinical reports. Majority of these plants have been found to be acting through modulation of serotonin and -amino butyric acid (GABA) neurotransmitters.
