Enormous research works have recently been carried out on phytochemical analyses of the medicinally important plant, Acalypha indica (L.), specially its antimicrobial activity. Moreover, the ethno-pharmacological importance has been described in several Siddha, Ayurvedic literatures. Recent discovery of several important drugs from the plant, including few novel compounds, made it research-worthy. This also justifies the importance of its conservation and exhaustive phytochemical exploration. The present review sheds light on current research trends of Acalypha indica in view of its diverse ethnomedicinal uses and as a potential source of valuable drugs and unique phytochemicals.
