Abstract: The various compounds present in medicinal plants shows enormous clinical output on the biological systems. Saxifragaceae family contains 32 species worldwide. From both ethno medicine and medicinal point of view Bergenia ligulata from Saxifragaceae family have an extreme diversification amongst all other species present in this family. Though this plant is commonly grown, but it is not used in modern clinical purpose though people are using it traditionally. Also plant is not used as a whole, rather individual parts of this plant demonstrate interesting pharmacological activities. The main objective of this review is to provide a brief summary of data that are available on various literature, on the area of phytochemistry, its pharmacology and traditional uses which provides an up to date data for future research to reveal its full potency and also help in manufacture of drugs and further clinical studies.
Summary: Overall, the present investigation suggests that the Bergenia ligulata is a potential source of naturally occurring phytochemicals and in this regard, these could be used in the field of pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic as a source of the latter. Moreover, the in vivo model studies will further help to investigate the superiority of these extracts.
