The main advantage of using phytoconstituents is free from adverse effects where none of the medication can do. However, the physiochemical properties such as poor permeation, poor solubility and non- targeting at the active site creates a barriers which hinders its therapeutic efficacy. So, targeted drug delivery strategies are employed to overcome these barriers and provide uniform drug targeting at the active site in desired concentration and improved therapeutic efficacy. These day’s colonic diseases are commonly seen and needs lifelong medical attention.
