Many of the bioactive constituents of phytomedicines are water-soluble compounds like flavonoids, glycosides; terpenoids in which flavonoids are a noteworthy class of bioactive compounds possesses broad therapeutic activities. Due to water soluble herbal extract and lipophilic outer layer phytosomes elicits better absorption and so improves bioavailability and actions than the conventional herbal extracts containing dosage form. The innovation has enhanced pharmacokinetics and pharmacological parameters. It has a lot of potential in the field of medicine, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
