The species Strychnos nux-vomica and Strychnos potatorum Linn., which belong to the Loganiaceae family, are used in traditional medicine to treat gonorrhoea, leukorrhea, gastropathy, bronchitis, chronic diarrhoea, dysentery, renal and vesicle calculi, diabetes, conjunctivitis, scleritis, ulcers, and other eye diseases. This medicinal species has been highlighted in an effort through pharmacological and phytochemical research. The morphology, phenology, distribution, phytochemical analysis, and pharmacological screening of Strychnos potatorum and nux-vomica, two significant medicinal plants, are the subjects of the current review. The gathered data may serve as the foundation for its widespread application as a therapeutic agent in both conventional and alternative medicine.

Keywords    Pharmacological, Phytochemical, Strychnos nux-vomica, Strychnos potatorum.
