Abstract

Plants have found extensive use in both traditional and modern medicinal practices globally. Plant-derived remedies present a secure alternative, characterized by the absence of potential side effects commonly linked to pharmaceutical drugs. The comprehensive phytochemical analysis of medicinal plants has unveiled a diverse range of bioactive compounds within plants traditionally employed for medicinal purposes, thereby highlighting a broad spectrum of therapeutic properties. In the continuous investigation, a meticulous and thorough chemical identification process was undertaken for the Lebanese medicinal plant Urtica dioica. This rigorous approach not only substantiates the traditional applications of nettle but also emphasizes the considerable pharmaceutical value inherent in the plant. This study contributes significantly to our understanding of the plant's chemical composition, reinforcing its potential as a valuable resource in pharmaceutical research. The results obtained not only substantiate the traditional applications of nettle but also underscore the substantial pharmaceutical value inherent in the plant. Furthermore, this study has resulted in the successful isolation and characterization of different compounds from the distilled water, methanol and acetone extract of Urtica dioica. This comprehensive approach significantly contributes to enhancing our understanding of the plant's chemical composition, thereby reinforcing its potential as a valuable resource in pharmaceutical research.
