  Review of Pentatropis capensis (Linn. F.) Bullock (Syn. Pentatropis microphylla W. & A): An Extra Ph
   

Pentatropis capensis (Linn. F.) Bullock is interpreted as Kakanasa by various authors but the Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India accepted Martynia diandra Glox. (Syn. M. anuna) as botanical source of Kakanasa. Some of the pharmaceutical companies are incorporating Martynia diandra in Chyavanprash (an ayurvedic formulation), while some companies are preferring Pentatropis capensis in their formulation. Like Rasna, Pashanbhedha and other controversial drugs, ‘Kakanasa’ also appears to be a controversial drug. Tribal claims confirm the analgesic activity of Pentatropis capensis and incidentally Salicylic acid is reported to be one of the constituents of this plant. Keeping this in view the present review was made from Ayurvedic perspectives.
