The liver is the largest and one of the most vital organs in the body of mammals. All of our blood flows through it. When the liver is damaged scar tissue forms and stops the flow of blood in healthy cells. Much liver damage is caused by drinking excessive alcohol. Alcohol is the common cause for the development of cirrhosis in liver and unfortunately is very often fatal. Functions of liver which are important for maintenance and performance of the body include- carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism, detoxification and secretion of bile. Unfortunately the liver is often abused by environmental toxins, poor eating habits, alcohol and some time due to over dose of the counter drug, which can damage and weaken the liver and eventually lead to hepatitis & cirrhosis. Conventional medicine is now persuing the use of natural products such as herbs to provide the support that the liver needs. Many herbs such as Eclipta alba, Boerhaavia diffusa, Andrographis paniculata Phyllanthus amarus, Terminalia arjuna and many more have a long history of traditional use in revitalizing the liver. The paper deals with documentation of plants which possess hepatoprotective properties.
