Abstract:

The plant Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.) Planch. belonging to the family vitaceae, is an example of ethnomedicinal plant species which is the source of dye and a range of traditional medicines that cure various diseases. The plant has high medicinal value and is used for indigenous treatment of numerous diseases including bone fractures, dysentery, leucorrhoea, dental problems, stomach pain, gout, tuberculosis, dyspepsia indigestion, body weakness and for bone strengthening. The plant contains some pharmacologically active constituents that have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory activities. The plant is identified in trade for its dye. Plant is also sold as wild species of medicinal plant and is direct or indirect source of income for the tribal people. The plant needs phytochemical and pharmacological investigations on a wider range which may have great scope in near future. Thus, efforts are needed to conserve, and cultivate the plant. This paper reviews the plant’s medicinal and economic aspects.
