About this book

Hypertension is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by a persistently elevated blood pressure that increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. Hypertension can also lead to other conditions such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease and blindness. Many antihypertension agents are used for the treatment of hypertension. But these drugs have some side effects such as diuresis. The use of medicinal plants for the treatment of hypertension is very common because these remedies are easily available at a lower cost than novel pharmaceuticals.

The present volume compiles information on eighteen medicinal plants used worldwide to treat hypertension, namely Acacia sp., Allium hookeri, Bacopa monnieri, Centella asiatica, Citrus sp., Cocos nucifera, Clerodendrum colebrookianum, Convolvulus pluricaulis, Coriandrum sativum, Elettaria cardamomum, Nardostachys jatamansi, Nigella sativa, Olea europaea, Phylanthus urinaria, Rauwolfia serpentine, and Tribulus terrestris. They are reviewed in sixteen different chapters received from researchers working in countries such as India, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Tunisia, and the USA.

Furthermore, two chapters are included on the various pathophysiological processes of hypertension, regulatory mechanisms of blood pressure, and pharmacology of antihypertensive agents, as well as treatment options. In this volume, the emphasis has been put on the pharmacology and phytochemical composition of medicinal plants that act in prevention, management and treatment of hypertension. Simultaneously, the results reviewed in the articles have also provided an ideal platform for the isolation, purification and characterization of both known bioactive and novel compounds present in these plants for future potential drugs against hypertension. The volume is aimed at a wide range of audience of ethnobotanists, phytochemists, pharmacologists, pharmacists, pharmacognosists and other research scientists engaged in the search for new drugs from natural resources for hypertension treatment.
