Nanotechnology has revolutionized several scientific disciplines with its ability to engineer and modify materials at the nanoscale. Due to its environmental friendliness and prospective uses across many industries, green nanoparticle synthesis has attracted much attention. Green nanoparticle synthesis produces nanoparticles by using natural resources instead of toxic chemicals and energy-intensive processes, such as plants, microorganisms, and biomolecules.

Recent trends include utilizing microbes, biomolecules including enzymes and proteins, and plant extracts as reducing and stabilizing agents. This process gives nanoparticles unique features that increase their potential applications across medicine, catalysis, and agriculture. A notable fusion of ancient wisdom and modern science can be seen in applying nanotechnology to Ayurveda.

Ayurveda focuses on a comprehensive approach to health and well-being, using natural  medicines and individualized care. Using environmentally friendly nanoparticles, ayurvedic  may improve treatment outcomes, drug-delivery systems, and diagnostic procedures. The bioavailability and targeted administration of Ayurvedic medicines may be enhanced using nanoparticles,  maximizing their efficacy while reducing potential adverse effects. This review examines current trends in the environmentally friendly production of nanoparticles, emphasizing its ethical implications and cutting-edge approaches. To develop a creative synergy between conventional wisdom and contemporary scientific advancements, it also explores merging nanotechnology with Ayurveda, the traditional Indian holistic healthcare system.
