ABSTRACT:
Asparagus adscendens Roxb. (Asparagaceae) is a suberect prickly shrub, with white tuberous roots. It is an important medicinal plant and is commonly known as Ujli Musli, Hazamuli, Satavar, Satmuli, Safed Musli in Hindi and Safed Musli in Marathi. The plant which is used as a vegetable has white tubers which are hairy and mucilaginous and swell up with water. It has been reported to possess cooling and demulcent properties and is known to control the symptoms of AIDS. The ayurvedic practitioners have successfully used the roots of the plant for treatment of nervous disorder, inflammation and certain infectious diseases. The recent research reports indicate that the alcoholic and aqueous extracts of the roots of the plant showed some beneficial effects in some clinical conditions and in experimentally induced diseases like cancer. The present article attempts to review the phytochemical and pharmacological studies on the various parts of the A. adscendens especially on the root extracts
