From the early years of human evolution, we have used plants and its derivatives for nourishment and to combat diseases that made the plants especially the herbs essential for survival. Unlike today there were no sophisticated lab tests to isolate the active compounds and most herbs were selected by observing its effect on human body. However due to the advancing scientific knowledge scientists have been able to identify and isolate many compounds within herbs .

Rather, it is a pre-programmed process that begins at the cellular level. Through his work it became clear that finding ways to reduce or eliminate cell damage could significantly .
