Bronchial asthma, Thulasi Ennai, Polyherbal formulation, Pediatric Siddha formulation


Objectives: The purpose of this review article is focused on the photochemical constituents and therapeutic potential of Thulasi Ennai to combat pediatric bronchial asthma.

Methods: The electronic databases such as Google Scholar, Medline/PubMed, Web of Science, Science Direct, Scopus and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), and reference lists have been looked to identify publications pertinent to the individual herbs of Thulasi Ennai.

Results: The pharmacological effects of the herbs found in Thulasi Ennai possess anti-asthmatic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and other pharmacological effects relevant to the management of bronchial asthma.

Conclusion: The present review concluded the safety of the Thulasi Ennai in preclinical studies. Further, clinical studies of Thulasi Ennai would need to be performed in humans to assess the efficacy of Thulasi Ennai.
