Abstract:

Prunus domestica, commonly known as Aloo Bukhara, Prunes, or European Plum, is a member of the Rosaceae family renowned for its widespread cultivation in temperate regions. India stands as the second-largest producer of plums globally, emphasizing its agricultural and economic significance. Phytochemical analyses reveal the presence of flavonoids, phenolic compounds, and various bioactive constituents within Prunus domestica. This review consolidates current knowledge on its morphology, drawing insights from Unani literature, and synthesizes findings from phytochemical studies. Furthermore, the review elucidates the diverse therapeutic potential of Prunus domestica, including its antioxidant, hepatoprotective, anticancer, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antihypotensive, antihyperlipidemic, and anxiolytic properties. This comprehensive overview underscores the multifaceted significance of Prunus domestica in traditional medicine and modern pharmacology, highlighting avenues for further research and application.
