  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Analgesic
  • Tranqulizing
  • Antiseptic
  • Anti-Emetic
  • Antibacterial
  • Anticonvulsant
  • Haemodynamic (Hypotensive)
  • Anti-Obesity
  • Wound Healing
  • Extract of C. rotundus showed high potent inhibitory activity on crude enzyme Na+/K+-ATP-ase from rat brain
  • C. Rotundus preparation from aqueous and alcoholic extracts exhibited a lipolytic action and mobilized fat from the adipose tissues in rats, thus helping to reduce the obesity.
  • The ethanol extract of rhizomes (100mg/kg, p.o.) reduced hind limb extension and duration of convulsion significantly, (p<0.001). These results suggest that the ethanol extract of its rhizomes is worthwhile to develop the potent phytoconstituent for treatment of epilepsy and the flavonoids present in ethanol extract could be attributed for aiticonvulsant activity.
  • Ethanolic extract of C. rotundus produced relaxation of rabbit ileum and spasmolytic effect against contractions induced by acetylcholine, barium chloride and 5-hydroxitriptamine, showing a direct relaxant action on the smooth muscle
