A versatile plant is Murraya koenigii. It belongs to the family Rutaceae. The plant is also known as Meethi neem or Curry Leaf/Kari pataa. India is the plant’s native country. The world’s tropical and subtropical regions are where it is found and dispersed. The entire plant can be used to treat and cure a variety of illnesses. Beneficial for creating cosmetic and medicinal formulations. The plant has numerous Important phytochemicals, vitamins, and nutrients. Moreover, it has a wealth of nutrients and minerals. Due to the existence of these important chemical constituents (K, S, Ca, Zn, Fe, and Mg), the plant contains numerous minerals. Pharmaceutical effects such as anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, hypoglycaemic, ulcer-preventing, and wound-healing Insecticidal, anti-oxidant, hypocholesterolaemia, and helpful for improving memory are some more uses. Anti-fungal, anti-microbial, etc. This study's primary objective was to disseminate information about plants. Advantages/use for pharmaceutical and dietary purposes.
