Dr. Nitin Jain* Dr. Pratibha Chaudhary and Dr. Omparkash Sharma

ABSTRACT

Tribulus terrestris Linn. (family Zygophyllaceae), commonly known as Gokshur in Sanskrit or Gokharu in hindi and puncture vine in English, has been used for a long time in Ayurvedic medicine for treatment of various kinds of diseases. The great acharya charaka has indicated it as in mutra krichsta[1] (Dysuria) and acharya shusruta indicated it as ashmari bhedan[2] (As in renal calculi). Also it has diuretic, aphrodisiac, antiurolithic, immunomodulatory, antidiabetic, absorption enhancing, hypolipidemic, cardiotonic, central nervous system, hepatoprotective properties. This will help in confirmation of its traditional use along with its value-added utility, eventually leading to higher revenues from the plant.
