Chlorophytum borivilianum is a herb with lanceolate leaves, from tropical wet forests in peninsular India. The Hindi name is safed musli (also commonly known as musli). It is cultivated and eaten as a leaf vegetable in some parts of India, and its roots are used medicinally as a sex tonic under the name safed musli. The medicinal value is thought to derive from its saponin content, up to 17 percent by dry weight. It has also recently been suggested that it may produce an aphrodisiac agent. As medicinal demand has increased, the plant has been brought under cultivation. The saponins and alkaloids present in the plant are the source of its alleged aphrodisiac properties. In traditional Indian medicine it is used as 'Rasayan' or adaptogen. The Musli roots contain around 25 types of alkaloids, vitamins and minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium. It also contains polysaccharides, resins, phenol, and mucilage content. The simple sugars like fructose, glucose, galactose, sucrose, xylose and mannose are also found in the Musli roots.
