What is Pharmacognosy

Pharmacognosy is the study of medicines derived from natural sources. It includes the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs, drug substances or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources.”

  • quality control (identity, purity, consistency)
  • efficacy (therapeutic indications, clinical studies, pharmacological investigations)
  • safety (adverse reactions, drug interactions, contraindications, precautions
