Padma (Clerodendron serratum)
It is a small shrub, 2-4 meter tall bearing opposite leaves and having woody rootstock. Flowers are large pinkish-white in colour and numerous appearing in May to August month. The plant is distributed over scrub forests throughout the tropical and sub-tropical parts upto 1500 m particularly in Bengal, Odisha and peninsular India. Light to medium, particularly in laterite or red loam soils. It grows all over tropical and sub tropical regions.
Ananta (Fagonia arabica)
Fagonia is a genus of wild, flowering plants in the caltrop family, Zygophyllaceae, having about 35 species. Species occurring in the US are commonly referred to as fagonbushes. The distribution of the genus includes parts of Africa, the Mediterranean Basin, the Mid-East, India, and parts of the Americas. Fagonia species have been used ethnobotanically by traditional practitioners under Ayurvedic and other healing regimes for many maladies. Species occur in deserts, dry washes, ditches and on rocky outcrops, including at altitude.
Sariva (Hemidesmus indicus)
Hemisdesmus indicus is a slender, twining, sometimes prostrate or semi-erect shrub. Roots are woody and aromatic. The stem is numerous, slender, terete, thickened at the nodes. The leaves are opposite, short-petioled, very variable, elliptic-oblong to linear-lanceolate. The flowers are greenish outside, purplish inside, crowded in sub-sessile axillary cymes. Hemidesmus indicus is used to make beverages like nannari sharbat, and is used in traditional medicine. In southern states of India (particularly Tamil Nadu), the pickled roots are served along with rice dishes.
Rasna (Pluchea lanceolata)
Rasna is also as “Yukta” in Ayurveda. It is a versatile aromatic plant with great medicinal value. It is an undershrub widely distributed in greater parts of India and the adjoining Asian countries. Rasna is beneficial in managing arthritis as it reduces inflammation and joint pain due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is also good for kidneys as it reduces oxidative stress due to its antioxidant properties. As per Ayurveda, drinking Rasna kadha (decoction) is useful in arthritis and kidney problems.
Madhuyashtika (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
Glycyrrhiza glabra is a flowering plant of the bean family Fabaceae, from the root of which a sweet, aromatic flavouring can be extracted. The liquorice plant is an herbaceous perennial legume native to Western Asia, North Africa, and Southern Europe.
