HERNANDEZ-ALVARADO, Jerelly et al. Antibacterial and antihelmintic activity of plant secondary metabolites: approach in Veterinary Medicine. Abanico vet [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.1, pp.14-27. ISSN 2448-6132.

Currently, the use of medicinal plants has become an alternative for treatment and control of diseases in both veterinary and human medicine. Recent studies have reported that secondary metabolites present in all plants have effects on production and animal health as they have bactericidal or bacteriostatic, anthelmintic (tannins and saponins), anticancer, antioxidant and immunostimulant (phenolic compounds, alkaloid saponins, and terpenes) effects; and for their content of secondary metabolites they have been proposed as an alternative in animal feed because can increase productive and reproductive parameters. The presence or absence of these effects depends on the kind of plant, the content of secondary metabolites, the kind of secondary metabolite and the quantity and the frequency in which they are consumed. The aim of the present review was to carry out a bibliography search of the main secondary metabolites of plants with antimicrobial and over gastrointestinal nematodes activity, reported in Veterinary Medicine
