Now a days the modulating immune response concept is studied a lot. However, the clinical use of chemically synthesized immuno stimulants & suppressants are either cytotoxic or even caused fatalities. Conversely, plant mediated drugs are used by

immunity boosting activities. The alkaloids, flavones, essential oils, polyphenolic compounds etc. were the major constituents present in the different extracts, which were mainly responsible for their immunity boosting activity.
