Such treatment often used the plant-derived bioactive compounds for the treatment of chronic diseases, child and female reproductive diseases, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease etc. the demand for the natural product in the treatment of primary health care has been increasing due to the proven side effects of chemically synthesizing drugs. This needs the management and conservation of medicinal plants including rare and endemic species at the genetic level that could enhance the mass scale production and fulfil the demands of the pharmaceutical industries. Plantation and conservation in their habitat may be the best way of overcoming difficulties in the cultivation practices. While, Manipur being located in the biodiversity hotspot zone, the region could be acted as plant hub, a potential source of bioactive compounds.
