Advances in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) are nominal. Currently available therapies are merely symptomatic treatments that cannot prevent the development of the disease. Several herbs have been found very useful for managing neurological diseases. There are immense possibilities to discover a more successful line of ND treatment. Phytochemicals from medicinal plants may play a vital role in maintaining the chemical balance of the brain by affecting the capacity of receptors for the major inhibitory neurotransmitters. A few plants have already gained popularity for the potential treatment of NDs. This volume highlights the therapeutic role of medicinal plants and their scientific validation for improving neuronal health. It presents 15 chapters that cover the herbal treatment of NDs, including Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. The contents cover a range of pharmaceutical agents like sirtuins, berberine, rosmarinic acid and resveratrol. The book serves as a reference for pharmacology and herbal medicine scholars as well as healthcare workers interested in information about alternative and complementary therapies for neurological disorders.
