Among them, Achillea millifolium from Asteraceae family is one medicinally important plant called as “yarrow” and has been used in folklore medicine for ailments such as skin inflammations, spasmodic and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as hepato-biliary complaints. Therefore, a plethora of scientific studies have been conducted to give substance to its ethnomedicinal claims and in addition to that, even more, biological functions such as its hypotensive, antioxidant, antimicrobial, vasoprotective, antiulcer and antispermatogenic activities have also been scientifically established. The aim of this article is to comprehensively collect recent phytochemical and pharmacological activities of Achillea millifolium and should, therefore, act a suitable reference for future research into the plant’s phytochemical activity and overall pharmacological profile evaluation.
