ROHIT SHARMA, HETAL AMIN, GALIB, P.K. PRAJAPATI.




Abstract

Natural products with medicinal value are gaining importance in clinical research
as they provide better alternatives, owing to lesser side-effects and low cost than conventional
synthetic drugs. Among the vast library of important medicinal plants, Guduchi is immensely
valuable in terms of therapeutics and global trade. Scattered information exploring therapeutic
potential of Guduchi is accessible and there is need to assemble it. Therefore, an effort is made
to assemble the scattered information in prehistoric texts, Brihatrayi, Nighantu and other Ayurvedic
treatises along with ethno-botanical and modern evidences highlighting the role of Guduchi in
therapeutics. Citations relevant to topic were screened.

Key words: Ayurveda, Guduchi, Tinospora cordifolia, Brihatrayi, Nighantu
