Adulsa, Justicia adhatoda, Malabar nut - Plant

Common Name: Vasaka, Adulsa, Malabar Nut

Scientific name: Justicia adhatoda


                 Justicia adhatoda is a perennial shrub native to parts of Asia. The leaves of the plant contain vaccine, an alkaloid with medicinal qualities. This alkaloid, along with other compounds found in the plant, makes it useful in treating a variety of medical conditions. In areas where the plant grows wild, local populations commonly use the shrub to treat coughs, colds, and asthma. The leaves also treat skin infections, fever, and inflammation. Although Justicia adhatoda produces flowers as well as fruit, the leaves contain most of the beneficial alkaloids. The leaves have a bitter taste and are rarely eaten whole. Justicia adhatoda works to treat fever and inflammation with its antibacterial action. The plant is not an effective treatment for all bacteria strains, but compounds in the plant’s leaves are effective against Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi, and Klebsiella pneumoniae. The active compounds in the leaves reduce fever and inflammation as they eliminate the offending bacteria. Along with its medicinal qualities, the plant’s bitter taste repels insects. It is commercially cultivated in India, where farmers use the leaves as an herbicide.
