The plant APAMARGA is a plant that has found a very profuse use in Ayurveda. The ash that results from completely burning the plant is a good source of Potash which is also useful as a Kshara (Alkali) in the treatments or formulations in Ayurveda. The plant finds its place as one of the important Shirovirechaneeya (Nasal errhine or snuff) substance. The leaves are taken as food in place of Spinach at Tanzania while the roots are cooked and used along with cereals, wine and other food substances in China and Vietnam.
