Dr. Preeti Soni  | Shri Jitendra Yadav
Abstract: Heliotropium Indicum Linn., commonly known as ?Indian heliotrope? is very common in India with a long history of traditional medicinal uses in many countries in the world. The plant is reported to possess antibacterial, antitumor, uterine stimulant effects, antifertility, wound healing, anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, and diuretic activities. Several pyrrolizidine alkaloids have been isolated from this species. In the Present Paper we have tried to use the plant extract for the treatment of Swelling in the body Parts. The plant Specimen we have taken for our analysis is used for many ailments, but not for reducing of swelling. The active principle Indicine-N-oxide has reached Phase 1 clinical trials in advanced cancer patients. But severe toxic side-effects showed that therapy with indicine-N-oxide was not justi?ed. Most of the alkaloids are hepatoxic, so internal use of Heliotropium .species is not recommended. Moreover, research are conducting now a days for internal use in various diseases. A comprehensive account of the chemical constituents and the Phytochemical Analysis are presented in this paper, so the potential use of this plant as medicine for reducing swelling in any part of the body can be systematically evaluated.
