Abstract:
As part of the development of traditional medicine rich in Africa and particularly in Bénin, several studies have been conducted for years to evaluate the ethnopharmacological properties of medicinal plants. It is in this context that Mitragyna inermis is known for many of these properties mentioned in the traditional pharmacopoeia and whose biological analyses have confirmed some of them. The purpose of this work is to summarise previous work; biological as chemical on this plant. The extracts showed that it has antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic properties. The isolated compounds are certainly responsible for these known biological activities. The synergistic action of the compounds present in the extracts can justify also its use in the treatment of several pathologies. Finally, this review of literature carried out on this plant, is a contribution to the synthesis of the previous works carried out in order to deepen its valuation.
