Author(s):

Abstract:

Entada phaseoloides (L.) is a well-known creeper that is frequently used therapeutically in the orient and is gaining popularity as a significant medicinal plant. Numerous investigations on this medicinal plant have produced a wealth of information regarding its shape, chemical constituents, and biological activity in relation to extracts and extracted secondary metabolites. Their bioactive components have been shown to have a variety of pharmacological effects through biological research and conventional therapeutic practice. Since ancient times, the plant has been utilized as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic, antiarthritis, antidiabetic, antioxidant, cytotoxic, antibacterial, and molluscidal agent in ayurvedic medicine. The current review provides a summary of the state of our understanding of morphology, significant bioactive ingredients, their chemistry, claimed therapeutic characteristics, pharmacological activities, and folkloric (traditional) applications. Additional research is needed to fully understand E. phaseoloides and assess the many biological activities of either its extracts or the isolated chemicals with potential mechanisms of action.
