Abstract: The development of novel herbal delivery system is of considerable importance to overcome various constraints like poor bioavailability, in vivo stability, aqueous insolubility, intestinal absorption and unspecific site of action. In last one decade many novel carriers such as liposome, nanoparticles, phyto-complex have been reported for successful modified delivery of various herbal drugs like paclitaxel, curcumin, quercetin, Ginkgo bioloba L., etc. The objective of this review article is to summarize role of nanoparticles for production of smart herbal drugs. Fifteen herbal plant/plant parts/ product have been reviewed along with information regarding botanical identity, active ingredient, mechanism of pharmacological activities, drawbacks related with traditional dose, method of their nano-particle production, mode of action of nano-carriers and their efficacy.
