Herbal drugs are considered as the natural products. These natural products are being used since ancient times to cure various disease. Many herbal products demonstrated low therapeutic action due to their solubility problems which finally resulted in low bioavailability shows their extraordinary potential. To overcome all these problems, novel drug delivery systems in form of carriers are being developed for phytomedicines. The herbal novel drug delivery systems include drug delivery such as liposomes, nanoparticles, phytosomes, ethosomes, transferosomes, solid-lipid nanoparticles, microemulsion/ nanoemulsion, microsphere. Many herbal drugs have been incorporated into these systems for improvement of stability, bioavailability and reduction of toxicity. The present review is based on the incorporation of herbal drugs in novel drug delivery systems, formulation and their application in therapy.
