In Ayurvedic medicine, T. cordifolia is known as “Guduchi” and is considered to be one of the most divine herbs. It is a large, deciduous extensively spreading climbing shrub with several elongated twining branches. Leaves simple, alternate, exstipulate, long petioles up to 15 cm long, roundish, pulvinate, both at the base and apex with the basal one longer and twisted partially and half way around.
Guduchi is highly valued in Ayurveda for its detoxifying, rejuvenating, immune-boosting, and anti-rheumatic properties. It is now being studied and utilized in modern medicine for cold and flu prevention, immune support, skin disorders, arthritis, liver disorders, gout (and rheumatic disorders), and most recently to mitigate the negative effects of chemotherapy.
Guduchi is clearly an herb with a myriad of potent medicinal qualities, qualities that were recognized by the ancient rishis in Vedic times, long before modern scientific technology. Through spiritual means, the rishis were able to understand guduchi (and other herbs) in a profound manner and now modern science is able to evaluate and recognize many of the medicinal properties of guduchi.
