ETHNOBOTANICAL, PHYTOCHEMICAL AND PHARMACOLOGICAL SCIENCE OF TRACHYSPERMUM AMMI (AJWAIN) A SYSTEMATIC REVIEWAbstract
The aim of the present investigation was a systemic review of Trachyspermum ammi L. (Ajwain) coming from the family Apiaceae and its medicinal significance. The seeds of ajwain include approximate three-5% crucial brownish oil, and this species additionally incorporate thymol as the principal chemical constituent at the side of a few different important constituents like β-pinene, α-terpinene, α-pinene, p-cymene, γ-terpinene, and many others. Since ajwain possesses various phytoconstituents, it shows numerous pharmacological and biological properties which have been described. Based on the literature survey, we have focused light upon its pharmacological importance and its future perspective. The present investigation revealed information like its pharmacognostic profile, chemical composition, and its biological activity. These can help a researcher in developing novel entities in the future.
