Application of Berberine on Skin Diseases: A Review
The plants containing berberine have been used for the treatment of skin diseases, inflammatory disorders, and reducing fevers, wound healing, digestive and respiratory diseases and in treatment of tumors. By taking the specific properties of the berberine, this review describes the method mentioned in the literature regarding the berberine extraction. Furthermore, many experimental and clinical studies suggest that berberine has several pharmacological activities such as antioxidative, cardioprotective, nephroprotective, and hepatoprotective effect. This review summarizes the information about botanical occurrence, traditional uses and pharmacological effects of berberine and berberine containing plants.
