Abstract

Chronic conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD), including Crohn's Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC), have a significant impact on the quality of life experienced by patients. Innovative research is revealing complex molecular interactions between medicinal plants and diseases, advancing plant-based therapies. Typically, the primary methods for managing the condition involve using medications and making lifestyle adjustments. However, recent research indicates that medicinal plants could serve as additional, supportive options for managing the condition. This review article examines around 99 articles from sources such as Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, PubMed, ResearchGate, DOAJ, SCIELO, and NOPR. The review methodically investigates the therapeutic potential of different medicinal plants in the management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative Colitis. The review provides insights into the underlying mechanisms, pharmacological properties, and effectiveness of these plants. The findings present a promising opportunity for further research and development of plant-based therapies to improve IBD management and improve patient outcomes.
