Medicinal plants have been the main stay of traditional herbal medicine amongst rural dwellersworld-wide since antiquity to date. The therapeutic use of plants certainly goes back to the Sumerian and the Acadians civilization is about the third millennium BC. Hippocrates (ca. 460-377 BC), one of the ancient authors who described medicinal natural products of plants and animal origins, listed approximately 400 different plant species for medicinal purposes (Taylor et al., 2001).

Medicinal plants are plants which contain substance that could be used for therapeutic purposes or which are precursors for the synthesis of useful drugs (Abolaji et al., 2007). Medicinal plants, since time immemorial have been in virtually all cultures as a source of medicine. Over 5,000 plants are known to be used for medicinal purposes in Africa but only a few have been described for study (Taylor et al., 2001).

Medicinal plants typically contain several pharmacological active compounds that may act individually, additively or in synergy to improve health (Azaizeh et al., 2003).
