Abstract

Mineral elements play a critical role in building body tissues and regulating numerous physiological processes. They are thus essential constituents of enzymes and hormones; regulate a variety of physiological processes, and are required for the growth and maintenance of tissues and bones. Living organisms (including plants, animals and microorganisms) store and transport metals so as to get appropriate concentration for later uses in physiological reactions as well as a means of protection against the toxic effects of the metals. This paper reviews the mineral contents of medicinal and stimulating plants in Ethiopia.
