|Abstract:||Vitex negundo Linn. is credited with innumerable medicinal activities like analgesic, antiinflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, bronchial relaxant, hepatoprotective, etc. The ethanolic extract of leaves has been found safe as LD50 dose (by oral route) of it was recorded in non-toxic dose range. Larger trials are required to prove its all activities before it is recommended in future for clinical use, but it carries a great potential to be developed as a drug by the pharmaceutical industry. In this paper general medicinal uses and pharmacological activities of various parts of the plant have been reviewed.|
