In recent years, focus has been directed towards the development of drug delivery system using biologically active compounds derived from the natural sources. These formulations based on natural products have been reported to have significant activity and are advantageous over the conventional formulations in terms of solubility, enhanced bioavailability, increased pharmacological activity, stability and fewer side effects. Nowadays, people are switching to the natural products over synthetic compounds, which can be easily obtained from the locally available plants and can help in reducing public health costs. The present review aimed at highlighting the development of microspheres based on herbal actives formulations, in which biologically active compounds are delivered to the targeted site. It also summarizes the method of preparation, therapeutic activity and application of herbal formulations in various biomedical fields.
