In recent years, herbal remedies have been increasingly used instead of synthetic or chemical drugs due to the lesser side effects of previous antibiotics. Herbs can be used in the form of plant extracts or as their active ingredients. In addition, most of the world uses herbal materials because of their powerful antibacterial properties and primary care benefits. For example, herbs are an excellent alternative to nanosilver as an antibiotic and antiviral agent. Herbal antimicrobials include cloves, amaranth, tribulus terrestris, thistles, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, thyme, fennel, mint, fennel, chamomile, burdock, eucalyptus, evening primrose, balsam fir, mallow, and garlic.
The application of plant extracts would be an ideal alternative and could also open up new opportunities for the production of new antibacterial and antiviral drugs with lower side effects.
