In traditional systems of medicine, various plant parts such as roots, leaves, flowers, bark, seeds, and stems have been used as antioxidant, demulcent, laxative, diuretic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antiulcer. The present review is therefore an effort to give the detailed survey of literature on its pharamcognosy, phytochemistry as well as traditional and pharmacological uses.
