The current treatment primarily includes and medications which only provides symptomatic relief and when drug therapy is fails to provide relief, the next step is surgical treatments. Unfortunately the current regimens have certain limitations with multiple side possess economic burden thus, there is a need to discovered new therapeutic approaches which have potential and minimum adverse effects. For many years, some from natural products have provided competent resource for the revelation of potential therapeutic agents. The anti-PD potential of these is because of their well anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory activities, their repressive role on of protein and the regulatory effects of PD cognate pathways. The intention of this review article is to cover the potential of against the in PD and to encourage the improvement in future novel treatment strategies predicated on natural sources.
