Herbal medicinal products have been playing an important role in the primary health care of the people around the world, specially in the developing countries. In order to treat health problems with the modern medicines, the production of safe and effective herbal medicinal products in a standardized way is essential. Assessment of the quality, safety and efficacy of herbal medicinal products are an important issue. Standardization of raw materials, intermediates and final product of herbal medicines are the main issue for the quality control of herbal medicinal products. All of the supporting evidence behind the use of phytomedicines has been on use of standardized extracts of the plant material to ensure reproducibility in the clinical setting. With the growing interest for alternative approaches in treating diseases, herbal medicinal products have also an important role for the development of new therapeutic agents. For this issue, researches should focus on: 1. characterization of phytomedicines in terms of chemical composition and biofunctional activity. 2. studying the effects of certain processing and extraction methods and parameters on the chemical characteristics of phytomedicines source materials. 3. development of chemo-based and bio-based standardization methods for phytomedicines. Herbal medicinal products named as “Phytomedicines” exhibit a variety of biological activities on human health. These range from the control of regulatory processes by Health Authorities is essential for human life. Therefore, herbal medicinal products are also subject to the same legislative controls as other medicines.
