Although less potent than allopathic medicines, anti-inflammatory as well as antimicrobials plant derived products are often more effective in treating human illnesses mainly owing phytocompounds synergistic activity. For example, in the specific case of anti-inflammatory activity, there are data proving the synergism between polyphenols and polysaccharides fractions; similarly for antioxidant activity, especially if also combines triterpenic acids in order to increase phytocompounds solubility. In the specific case of antimicrobials, scientific results suggest phenylcarboxylic acid class boosting effect upon flavonoids subclasses. Given that vegetal world has been always a source of human health (the practice of self-medication using herbs dating from the Palaeolithic) phytocompounds efficacy mechanisms needs to be revealed and further adopted for the design and development of novel highly effective natural or combined medicines. © 2014 Vasile Goldis University Press.
