Plants are one of the main sources since the existence of humanity.The artifacts left by all civilized nations in the last 5000 years of world history indicate that they use plants for the treatment of diseases.
The first active substance obtained from plants is morphine isolated from opium plant.It was followed by the isolation of quinine from the bark of calisaya in 1820, digitalin used in the treatment of heart failure from the leaves of foxglove (Digitalin) in 1868, and acetyl salicylic acid from the bark of willow in 1890.
