Introduction

Degenerative nerve diseases are age-related, progressive and cause irreversible neurological loss that may lead to death. Chronic diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease are associated with insoluble protein depositions and pose serious health challenges that may intensify in the coming decades. Current therapies only help to alleviate some of the physical or mental symptoms associated with neurodegenerative diseases, although there is currently no remedy for slow disease progression. In recent years, attempts have been made to discover a mechanism for neurodegenerative diseases and prospective treatment that may help mitigate aging effects and prevent these diseases. Natural products have been a constant source of new approaches for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular plant alkaloids and polyphenolic compounds.

Indopathy for Neuroprotection: Recent Advances highlights herbal treatments that are preferred over conventional treatments in some regions. Book chapters focus on the effects of various medicinal plants that have shown promise in reversing pathological symptoms of neurodegenerative disease and highlight the neuroprotective role of medicinal herbal phytochemicals and their mechanism of action. 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.

Foreword

Exposure to plant-based phytochemicals can promote health and prevent chronic neurodegenerative diseases. Most traditional treatment prescriptions consist of a combination of several drugs. The combination of multiple drugs is thought to maximize therapeutic effectiveness by promoting synergies and improving or preventing potential side effects while targeting multiple goals.

Indopathy is a valuable source of information for discovering new remedies for a variety of human illnesses. The complex etiology of neurodegenerative diseases and the multifactorial effects of Indopathy and its active ingredients may give a broad perspective on traditional indian medicine in neuroprotection. Some indian medicinal plants and their active ingredients have shown promising results for oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis, and neurodegeneration in laboratory studies. Indopathy has excellent prospects for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and is considered to be effective in neuroprotection.

Combining modern molecular medicine principles with some ideas of traditional indian empirical medicine may be beneficial to translation medicine.

The proposed book focuses on indopathy for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. This book reviews a subset of traditional indian medicines and highlights their neuroprotective active ingredients for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cognitive-enhancing effects. This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to therapeutic options for some popular plant-derived neuroprotective agents. I congratulate the editor for synchronizing with global authorities on the subject to underline the upcoming challenges and present the most viable options for translating commercially viable ideas into easily affordable products and technologies.

I wish all the editors great success with the launch of this book and thank them for their dedication to plant-based neuroprotection around the world.
