Objective: To correlate the pharmacological potentials of Aquilaria agallocha & Borago officinalis. Aquilaria agallocha is an extraordinary plant amongst the most broadly developing types of the family Thymelaeaceae. The present survey compiles critical data with respect to pharmacological effects and restorative properties of Aquilaria agallocha. The plant has been accounted for antinociceptive, antimicrobial, diuretic, antioxidant, narcotic, antihyperglycaemic, thrombolytic, antidiabetic, ulcer defensive, anticancer, antidiarrhoeal, hepatoprotective properties. Borago officinalis L. (Boraginaceae) is generally known as 'Borage' and 'Gauzaban'. It contains high level content of GLA and the plant is presumed as hepatoprotective, gastrointestinal, anxiolytic, antispasmodic antipyretic& lipid-lowering effect. Conclusion: The pharmacological potentials of both the plants are quite similar & together they hold a plethora of medicinal potential. If these two plants are used to prepare a fixed-dose combination, it may paw path for a novel herbal formulation that can further be evaluated for future prospects in the prevention of Hypercholesterolemia & associated disorder.
