especially in arid area. It was used in folk medicines for the treatment of purgative, anthelmintic, antisyphilitic, emmenagogue, aperients, as a stimulant, antiscorbutic, antiphlogistic and established its potency against liver damage, cancer and oxidation in body. Several chemical constituents like Cadabicine, Cadabicine methyl ether, Cadabicine diacetate, α, β-Dihydroferulic acid, capparisine,cadibicilone, aromatic acid and kamphefrol are present in abundant amount in plant. Along with, it is wealthy in mineral and amino acid which are valuable for human and essentially for cattle’s. But, its pharmacological potentials such as purgative, anthelmintic, antisyphilitic, emmenagogue, aperients, stimulant, antiscorbutic, antiphlogisticare not yet explored. Thus, present review explores the traditional uses, chemical constituents, pharmacological activity, toxicity and mineral analysis.
