In every culture across the world you will find a long history of using plants for health and well  being, and many of the common medicines we use today are derived from them. This is because plants contain many active compounds and chemicals known as phyto chemicals: some of these are beneficial to our health, some are not, and others are poison. Moreover, different parts of a plant can contain different phyto chemicals:so the root of a plant could be used for one thing, the berries of the same plant for another, while the leaves may have no use at all.
