Polyphenolic Compounds - A Promising Leads for Antiviral Therapy Download PDF


Medicinal plants consist of a wide range of phytochemicals, which are usually described as secondary metabolites. The production of secondary metabolites in medicinal plants affects different factors, like stress and defensive responses. Various factors, such as species differences, environmental variables, and so on, will influence the type and level of the presence of secondary metabolites. Phytochemicals are produced by these medicinal plants and have a range of biological effects on human health. Polyphenolic compounds are found throughout the plant kingdom that is highly effective in lowering or minimizing the risk of various chronic illnesses. Polyphenols are classified into two types: flavonoids and phenolic acids. Medicinal plants and plant-based foods have complex mixtures of bioactive polyphenolic compounds. Because of this complexation, we are unable to identify the specific phenolic compounds' health benefits. A variety of scientific publications have explored polyphenolic phytochemicals' biological activity and mechanisms of action. The relevant data were collected from peer-reviewed journals, accessed from different data resources like PubMed, Google Scholar, and Scopus. The current review article focuses on the study of the antiviral properties of polyphenolic compounds.
