Recent scientific studies have focused heavily on the use of medicinal plants in agriculture and folkloric medicine as a complementary therapy, preventive strategy, or full therapy. Phytotherapy is being used more and more frequently for preventive purposes, the treatment of minor or chronic diseases, and recurrent infections, and for the advancement of organic livestock. In order to increase the activity of the immunological or reproductive systems and stimulate biochemical, haematological, or certain organ functions, extract preparations of several plants have been utilized. Many herbal metabolites have demonstrated antibacterial, antioxidant, reproductive enhancement and insecticidal properties. The most often utilized plants for health, reproduction, parasites, and insect pests’ control were carefully reviewed in this article.
