Human being knows honey since thousands of years for its nutritional and medicinal values. Traditional medicine systems like Ayurveda have elaborated honey as boon for health and patient care. Synergistic effect of honey was research but to a limited extend. Honey is advised with Picrorhiza kurroa for hepatic disorders or hepato-protection in Ayurveda. Here we have examined in vitro synergistic effect of honey when given with Picrorhiza kurroa in acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity in Balb/c mice model. We obtained Serum and liver lysate to check levels of hepatic markers, Alkaline phosphatase and Glutathione. The level of alkaline phosphatase raised while glutathione level is reduced during hepatic offence. We observed a compensation of above markers when P. Kurrua, honey and its combination were used in acetaminophen induced hepatic toxicity. We observed a better mice weight gain in combination group (Group IV) compared to control group. This study can pave a way for future research on honey as a better adjuvant for hepatotoxic drugs and other herb-drug interactions researches.
