Abstract:

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative condition that severely impairs memory and cognitive function. As the illness worsens, it produces verbal and visuospatial difficulties, as well as behavioural issues like rage, sadness, and indifference. The current treatment for Alzheimer's disease has no known cure, symptomatic relief can retard the progression with memory loss and other symptoms. However, natural remedies have a therapeutic effect on several symptoms of this disease, including dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The current review intends to provide an overview of herbs, such as Shankhpushpi, Brahmi, Pumpkin, Ashwagandha, Almond, Kesar, Sage, Amla, Turmeric and many more that have been documented to have CNS activity with respect to AD and could be used to treat symptoms, slow the development of AD.
