About Manjistha

Manjistha (Rubia cordifolia), commonly known as Indian Madder or common madder, is a plant that has rich history especially in complementary and alternative medicine. In Sanskrit, the term Manjistha means “bright red”. This alludes to the numerous benefits that the plant has on the blood, and the overall circulatory and lymphatic system. The plant majorly grows along streams and rivers found in forest edges, forest spaces that have been cleared and forests along coastal beaches. Such regions are normally of high altitude, mostly around 3500m above sea level. The plant which is native to South India can grow to a height of 1.5m. The perennial plant, which is a climber, belongs to the coffee family, Rubiacaea. Most of the plants in this family are known to contain relative amounts of anthraquinone compounds, especially in the roots.

The roots of the Manjistha plant have a bitter-sweet taste with an astringent flavour. They are long, cylindrical and are flexible in nature. The plant has a thick red bark and relatively long, slender and rough stems. The flowers of Indian madder range from green to yellow to white. The fruits from the plant are quite smooth and shiny and they grow in pairs. They take a globose shape and their colour ranges from purple to black when they are ripe. The Manjistha plant contains various bioactive chemical compounds which serve different purposes. These include alkaloids, anthraquinones, saponins, resins, glycosides, lactones and oils. The oils include both essential and fixed. The phytochemicals make the plant stand out in contributing to human health and overall wellness.

Since ancient times, the plant is believed to possess cleansing properties therefore it is able to purify blood, lymphatic system and the liver. It aids in getting rid of all toxic and waste products from the body. The roots of the Manjistha plant contain various properties which contribute to the numerous functions. The roots were also used to as colouring agents different medicated oils. The colouring matter present in the roots is attributed to the anthraquinones. The roots are ground into powder which then gives rise to the natural dye used on different sets of fabric. The most common shades derived from the roots include red, brown, scarlet and mauve. In present times, the plant has lost its popularity in the role of producing dyes. The plant was also used by those individuals who kept livestock, to improve the immunity of the animals against certain microorganisms: liver fluke, maggots and intestinal worms. In Ayurvedic medicine, the roots were also used in the preparation of kohl, which was used to improve eyesight and overall eye health.
