ABSTRACT:
Sida cordifolia (Malvaceae), Shrubby, branched, softly hairy and with much stellate hair nearly all over and subpersistant. Leaves 2.5-5 cm, long, coordinate, ovate-oblong, crenate, obtuse or subacute, not acuminate; petioles 1.2-3.8 cm long.1 The mucilaginous leaves are used as a demulcent and their infusion is given in fever as a refrigerant. They are also used against dysentery and for poulticing ulcers. A decoction of the leaves is said to possess emollient and diuretic properties. Fresh infusion they are bruised and applied to boils to promote suppuration. Leaves are cooked and eaten in cases of bleeding in piles. The leaves are cooling, aphrodisiac, unctuous, strengthening and promote sexual vigor and vital factor. They are good for rheumatism, flatulence, colic, haemothermia, emaciation, vitiated conditions of tridosa, seminal weakness and arthritis. However, there were no reports on both ethnobotanical and pharmacological profile of this plant. Hence, the present study was made to evaluate the wound healing potential.2
