Abstract

Atherosclerosis is a chronic arterial disease responsible for the majority of vascular-related deaths throughout the world. Immune cells and inflammation in conjunction with hyperlipidemia play a key role in atherosclerosis development. Regarding the low efficacy of the synthetic drugs and also the associated negative side effects which can adversely influence health-related quality of life, looking for natural, affordable and non-toxic substances seem necessary. Plant-derived natural products play a critical role in prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis. In this review, we aimed to outline the most important medicinal herbs effective on atherosclerosis through impact on immune system.
