Abstract

MARVELS OF MULAKA (RAPHANUS SATIVUS LINN.) : UNRAVELLING ITS MEDICINAL POTENTIAL

Sriwidya Bharati* and Swapna Bhat

ABSTRACT

Tubers are a wonderful treasure of mother earth. Numerous tubers are used as both food and medicine, in ayurveda as well as the folk system of medicine. Mulaka (Raphanus sativus Linn.) belonging to Brassicaceae family, is an annual erect herb with fusiform tap root. It is commonly known as radish. It is widely grown in India for its culinary purposes and also has extensive therapeutic utility. Part specific, maturity specific, and form specific doshakarma as well as rogaghnata of mulaka are mentioned in ayurveda. It is stated that baala mulaka is hita for consumption since it is tridoshahara and the vrddha mulaka is ahita since it is tridoshakara. This review article presents information regarding medicinal utility of mulaka in various ayurvedic texts in a systematic order.

Keywords: Mulaka, Radish, Raphanus sativus, medicinal utility.
