Study of Cow Urine and Medicinal Plant Extract as an Antibiotic Agent - A Review
Siddhesh P. Kamble | Shweta Bhise Patel
Abstract: The cow urine distillate has antibacterial and antifungal activities the inhibitory activity can be used in the control of bacteria and fungi of various origins. The test was done in vitro. Same result may be obtained in vivo also. Now a day's urine therapy treatment was developed in the medical sectors. Further studies analyze which components are responsible for antimicrobial activity and animal model could reveal antibacterial and antifungal activity of cow urine distillate in vivo. Phyto chemical investigation of cow urine sample and medicinal plant extracts will definitely prove the presence of active phytoconstituents like alkaloids, anthraquinones, flavonoids, tannins and saponins; which are the main constituents promoting antimicrobial activity. The present work proved that the CUD serves as a bioenhancer for antimicrobial activity by testing against different antibiotics. Therefore, cow`s urine has potential to cure several major adverse diseases, as this imparts the vital therapeutic effect of CUD. The plant-based origin of cellulose nanoparticle is renewable, abundant, sustainable and nature polymer, can be used for the encapsulation of cow urine. It makes the encapsulated CNPs to become a potential use in the field of medicine in particular with the drug release. The strategy of encapsulation makes the delivery advantages for toxic, fragile and poorly soluble compounds, and also possible to minimize the side effects. With these advantages encapsulated CNPs can go for the potential antimicrobial applications in medical field for the efficient production of implants, face masks, bandages, skin replacements, artificial blood vessels, supporting materials for enzyme immunization and nanoparticles. The cellulose obtained from other natural sources, may use to imitate the present study and enhance the potential effect of the encapsulated cow urine. Similarly, nanomaterials demonstrated recently have potential to carry the biomolecules; can make use of with cow urine.
