Plants with antioxidant and cytotoxic activity possess wide number of different phytoconstituents such as tocopherol, polyphenolic compounds, flavonoids, ascorbic acid etc. However, plants having non-polyphenolic compounds and terpenoids play a vital role in treating free radical induced diseases and cancer. The aim of this review was to compile all possible non-phenolic compounds and terpenoids with promising antioxidant properties and cytotoxicity so that future scientists can focus on these compounds to further investigate their potential to treat Alzheimer’s diseases, aging, and cancer. The required information for this review work had been accumulated by using valid sources such as PubMed, Science direct, google scholars etc. In this review, it has been presented that non-polyphenolic compounds and terpenoids have various beneficial effects such as anticancer, anti-microbial, antiinflammatory etc. Further investigations of these compounds may help to facilitate the discovery of new drugs for treating patients having different kinds of diseases.
