For a long time, natural medicine has been used as a therapeutic therapy based on generations of indigenous practices. Today the rise in natural remedies has been largely driven by public demand and billions of dollars are spent annually on herbal medicines. It is therefore important to document the effectiveness of natural medicine, its potential side effects, and potential interactions.
The development of new natural products can significantly improve the biomedical efficiency of natural medicine. This Special Issue will highlight research based on the evidence of natural medicines, with a particular focus on their use in therapy. I cordially invite authors to contribute original articles, as well as reviews, that unravel new biological activity of naturally-occurring products to help create greater opportunities for their future use.
