Peptic ulcer is a frequent disease of the Gastro Intestinal tract. It is mostly an inflamed break in the skin or the mucus membrane lining the alimentary tract. When there is a disturbance of the normal equilibrium caused by either enhanced aggression or diminished mucosal resistance ulceration occurs. Divergent to trendy belief, ulcer is not caused by spicy food but instead is most usually due to either an infection or long term use of medications. A combination of drugs like antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors is standard treatment of the peptic ulcer. However these drugs are expensive and are probable to produce more side effects when compared to herbal medicines Nevertheless, many studies revealed that Botanicals and their phytoceuticals can efficiently treat peptic ulcer in humans and a range of animal models. In the present review, attempts have been made to recognize about some of the common Indian medicinal plants which may be used in treatment or prevention of peptic ulcers.

Anti-Inflammatory and Central Analgesic Effect of the Aqueous Extract of the Leaves of Vitex Madiensis Oliv (Lamiaceae-Viticoïdeae)
Vitex madiensis Oliv is a plant of the family of the Lamaceae-Viticoideae used in traditional medecine in Congo against: dysenteriform diarrheas, barreness of the women, madness, otitis, tooth decay, oral affections, malaria, inflammation of ganglia and stiffness. The aqueous extract of leaves of Vitex madiensis oliv. was the subject of an investigating by the carraghenine and the histamine induced inflammation, and on the central pain of thermal origin at the doses of 50, 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg per os. A significant anti-inflammatory effect (***p< 0,001) at the dose of 400 mg/kg from the thirst hour and at the dose of 200 mg/kg from 3hours was observed. A significant (***p< 0,001) analgesic effect was observed at the dose of 400 mg/kg from 30 minutes. These effects are due to the presence of the numerous metabolites contained in this extract.

Nature has gifted numerous plants to mankind for prevention and management of diseases. Kumari [ALOVE VERA (L.)] belonging to Family Liliaceae is traditionally advocated by the IndianAyurvedic medicine to treat a huge variety of health problems. Its burn wound (Agnidagdha vrana) healing action has been mentioned in Ayurvedic classics viz. Kaiyadev Nighantu, Bhavprakash Nighantu and Shaligram Nighantu. According to Ayurveda, due to its Dahaprashman (cooling), Rasayana (rejuvenating), Vishaghna (anti-toxic), Balya (strength providing) actions and Kledashodhan (removes kleda) acions, it helps in burn wound healing. This plant contains Lupeol, salicylic acid, Anthraquinones, Glycoproteins, Polysaccharides etc. which are accountable for speedy wound healing. It is endowed with varied pharmacologicalactivities like antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, immune-modulatory, analgesic, anti-bacterial, moisturizing and cooling and anti-oxidant that aid wound healing.This plant has potential to cure sunburns, burns and minor cuts, and even skin cancer. The present review compiles information on Ayurvedic aspect as well as phytoconstituents and relevant pharmacological studies of Kumari regarding burn wound (Agnidagdha vrana) healing action. The present data is an endeavour to give scientific justification to the acclaimed activity i.e. its burn wound healing potential (Agnidagdhavranapaha) as stated in Ayurveda. It provides encouragement to investigators for conducting further research in order to develop an efficient and safe innovative chemical entity for the cure of burn wound.

Soil health Index demands organic fertilizer usage may be imperative couple with chemical fertilizers. Mungbean (Vigna radiata) yield and nutrients content were studied during kharif 2019 through coal and plant based humic acid (HA) application at NARC. The plots were arranged in randomized complete block design (RCBD). Results indicated that application of HA couple with chemical fertilizers significantly improved mungbean yield and nutrients content. HA at 15 kg ha-1 along with 50 kg ha-1 DAP recorded the highest grain yield (0.79 t ha-1) that is 14.4% more than the control (0.69 t ha-1) receiving 100% DAP application alone. The highest concentration of P (0.34 %), K (3.7%) and N (3.65%) in whole shoot mungbean were observed in the treatment where HA was applied at 15kg ha-1 along with 50 kg ha-1DAP. Residual organic matter improved by 0.06%. Based on findings of this study it can be suggested that HA couple with inorganic fertilizer application have significant effect on grain yield and nutrients content of N and P. It showed that HA mayenhanced NO3 and P availability through chelation and reduce soil P fixation.

Flower is the reproductive structure of the plant, which contains the active molecules called phyto-chemicals. These phyto-chemicals have potential biological activities when administered in the body, which help to eradicate the diseases and to attain health. Flower is the symbol of love and consciousness. It is one of the ultimate sources of happiness. In the yogic science each our bodily Chakra (Plexus) resembles the symbol of flower. Since Vedic period the flowers were used in the form of Pushabhisheka, Garland, and decorative purposes. The flowers too have spiritual aspects. For example Lord Bramha, Goddess Laxmi is sitting on lotus flower. Lord Buddha holds a lotus flower in his hand symbolises the Mantra “OM MANI PADME HUM”. Lord Shiva likes the Dhattura (Datura metal Linn), Dronapushpi flowers for Abhisheka. Lord Vishnu likes Tulasi flowers. Lord Ganesha likes Japa Pushpa; likewise flowers are being used since Vedic period not only for ritual but also for therapeutic purpose. Here an attempt is made to explore the various types of medicinal flowers, their therapeutic actions which were dealt in Ayurvedic classical texts. Further scope of study is to cultivate such medicinal flowers and evaluate the pharmacological actions by experimentally as well as clinical trials.
