Ramalingam, Mahesh & Kim, Sung-Jin


Liriopogons (Liriope and Opiopogon) species are used as the main medicinal ingredient in traditional medicine in several Asian countries. The roots or tubers of Liriope plants (Liriopes radix; LR) have traditionally been used for hundreds of years to treat cough, insomnia, constipation, asthma, and inflammation. The present review discusses extensively the available knowledge on its phytochemical and pharmacological activities in vitro and in vivo. The review does not include other parts of these plants. Literature evidence has been analyzed to identify responsible phytochemicals and their wide range of pharmacological activities. Further studies are needed for the isolation of purified compounds in order to understand their mechanisms of action and for clinical application.
