Abstract

Pistacia atlantica is the main herbal medicine that has been widely used in the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean areas since ancient time. Pistacia atlantica has been used for multiple purposes like stomach diseases, renal disorders, wounds and coughs. The aim of this study is to review its botanical characterization, traditional applications, photochemistry effects and pharmacological activities. Data in this review article was gathered from credible pharmacopeias, electronic databases such as Web of Science, Science Direct, PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, EBSCO, Google Scholar, SID and Iran Medex and textbooks of Persian medicine such as Canon of medicine (Ibn-e Sina, 980-1037 AD) and Makhzan-al-Advia (Aghili, 18th century). The keywords were searched in Persian and English books on medicinal plants and traditional medicine. The results showed that P. atlantica has many medicinal properties such as antioxidant, antidiabetic, antihyperlipidemic, along with others. It can also be effective in gastrointestinal diseases. Thus, different new drugs can be formulated based on P. atlantica for the management of various diseases.
