Ayurveda plays an important role for healthy and disease free life. Medicinal plants can be best option for pharma-industries to discover new chemical compound from it. Here, we took Bhrungraj commonly known as ‘false daisy’ well known medicinal plant, species of the plant from family Asteraceae for review purpose. In this review article we are going to focus morphology, phytochemistry, ethno-pharmacology, phytochemical constituents, clinical studies and last but not the least Ayurvedic aspects of Bhrungraj. Bhrungraj is reviewed through all angles from origin and morphology up to recent research works. Ayurveda explains its different actions and modern science proves the different pharmacological activities of it. Here, we put in front of you that how medicinal plant can be used by modern science as well as ayurveda. Each part of Bhrungraj is traditionally used for many diseased conditions for different communities. In ayurveda it is mainly used for hair problems. It is used as a valuable medicinal plant particularly for the treatment of liver disorders, gastro-intestinal disorders, respiratory tract disorders and hair problems. A modern science proves its different pharmacological activities by using its different extracts. Various phytochemical constituents have been isolated and identified which includes wedelolactone, eclalbasaponin, urosolic acid, luteolin and apigenin. Recently performed scientific researches show that above components can form the next generation to treat cancer, liver diseases, skin and hair problem.
