The hunt for an ideal Anti-microbial is perpetual and never ending in any system of medicine. The hunt becomes mandatory as the microbials evolve newer methods of resisting the antimicrobial activity of the existing drugs in the market. To improve the Quality of therapy and hence the quality of life of the patient, we need to find out newer molecules, which are Patient friendly, reasonably affordable, least toxic and available in plenty. We still fight for identifying such an ideal drug to fight common organisms that inhabitate human systems. In this quest, the authors of this paper highlight the anti-microbial activity of Naayuruvi Uppu (Herbal salt of Achyranthes aspera).
