Numerous naturally occurring antimicrobials are present in animal and plant tissues where they probably evolved as part of the defense mechanisms of the host against microbial invasion. There are many plants that demonstrate antimicrobial activity and these plants have found application in the food industry as antibacterial and antifungal agents. Plants with possible antimicrobial activity should be tested against an appropriate microbial model to confirm the activity and to ascertain the parameters associated with it. Bacterial infections are one of the prominent causes of health problems, physical disabilities and mortalities around the world. This article describes the antibacterial properties of Boerhaavia diffusa Linn, Aerva lanata, Aegle marmelos, Butea monosperma, Tinospora cordifolia, Hemidesmus indicus, Adhatoda vasica, Alstonia schlolaris, Mimosa pudica, Tabernaemantana coronariae and Asperagus racemosus medicinal plants.
