According to WHO, approximately 80 percent of people in developing countries still rely on traditional medicine, which is based primarily on plant and animal species, for primary health care. Because of the toxicity and side effects of allopathic drugs, herbal therapy is becoming more popular. Medicinal plants are crucial in the development of powerful therapeutic agents. Natural products derived from plants, animals, and minerals have long been used to treat human disease Plant medicines are frequently used in combination rather than alone to maximise the benefit of their combined strength. Because of synergism, polyherbalism provides a variety of benefits not found in single herbal formulations. Polymers are the building blocks of a pharmaceutical drug delivery system because they control drug release from the device. Polymers are used to protect drugs from the physiological environment and to extend their release time in order to improve their stability. This review focuses on matrix tablets, which are one of the most practical methods for developing sustained-release dosage forms, as well as the approaches used in their formulation and evaluation. The therapeutic efficacy of a sustained release matrix tablet with improved efficacy can be increased. It also emphasizes the significance of polyherbalism and matrix Tablet.
