Abstract: Essential oils have attracted considerable worldwide attention over the last few decades. These natural products have wide-ranging pharmacological activities and biotechnological applications. Faced with the need to find new anti-ulcer agents and the great effort on the development of drugs for the treatment of ulcers, in this review, the anti-ulcer activities of 21 bioactive compounds found in essential oils are discussed.
Keywords: ulcer; gastroprotective; essential oil; monoterpene; phenylpropanoid; anti-inflammatory; antiulcerogenic; natural products
