17 conclusion

Natural medicines have been used for thousands of years in China, among which plants account for the majority. In recent years, with the deepening of the research on medicinal plant chemical ingredients and their biological activities, the therapeutic effect and curative effect have been more and more concerned and recognized by the world, which also brings hope to the treatment and even cure of many diseases. At present, the research on the medicinal plants of zhuang Yang is not very comprehensive. Most of the research work is mainly on the extract of a part or the whole plant, but the problems of which components play the role of zhuang Yang, whether a single component plays a role or a combination of ingredients to produce curative effect are still to be solved. Therefore, it has a broad prospect to study the natural medicine which has the function of aphrodisiac.
