The Plants of the genus Fagonia have been broadly utilized as adjunctive therapy, to treat several conditions involving high fever, diabetes, asthma, stoma1chache, dental pain, and renal problems using their aqueous extracts as medicines. This genus is a valuable source that comprises a variety of Triterpenes, flavonoids, and Saponins. The herbal chemistry as well as the biological action of Fagonia species have been a candidate for many researchers. The in vivo pharmacological screening of their extracts has manifested some other significant properties such as cytotoxic and anti-cancer activity. This review study has gathered the important research that has been carried out on the species that grow in Libya. It includes an exhaustive survey of literature about the medicinal value and the bioactivities of various extracts obtained from these Fagonia species using references from major databases.
