Alzheimer disease (AD) is the most common form of the dementia which occurs among older people above the age of 60 years. The Alzheimer’s disease once considered a rare disorder and it is now seen as a major public health problem that is seriously affecting millions of older people and their families world over. The incidence of AD ranges from 1 to 4 percent of the population per year rising from its lowest level at ages 65 to 70 years to rates that may approach 6 percent for those over the age of 85 years. Strategies for neurorescue, neurorepair, neuroprotection or treatment are being actively pursued by the basic, translational, and clinical research communities. As our population ages, the already enormous impact of neurodegeneration on society will become even larger without better prevention and treatment. In all cultures, the origins of herbal medicine are lost in the mists of time. There is little doubt that humans used herbs for healing well before anything could be written about them. At some point in an advancing culture, written documents become the repository for knowledge that had been passed on from one generation to the next. Among the earliest such documents are those describing the religious beliefs of the people and those describing the medical practices.
