Therapeutic plants are of great interest as revolutionizing therapeutic agents in recent years for the treatment of several diseases. Gymnema sylvestre is commonly cultivated in India, member of the Apocynaceae family and also distributed in the various regions of Asia, Australia and Africa. It is extensively used in the Ayurvedic and traditional drug system, also it is the most promising plant used to cure diabetes mellitus. It is used as sweet paralyzing agent due to the existence of important phytochemicals constituents like gurmarin, gymnemic acids and gymneasaponins. It explore a wide range of health-giving effects as an effectualnatural remedy for diabetes, bronchitis and leukodema. It has been reported that G.sylestre has anti-diabetes, anti-obesity, antiviral, antidote of snake venom, anti-microbial and hypolipidaemic activities. This review has explore different phytochemicals as well as pharmacological potential of G.sylvestre.
