Abstract: <b><i style="">Vitex negundo</i> Linn.</b> 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 LD<sub>50</sub> 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. <b style=""> </b>
