Abstract

In the present scenario, many botanical sources of plants are used in the name of Dugdhika. This article aims at reviewing all such botanical species used worldwide. Ayurveda classical literature, Peer reviewed journals, Various Online databases and search engines such as PubMed, DHARA, Google scholar and Ayush research portal were used and data were analyzed for collecting all such useful information. 5 botanical species were identified which are used in the name of Dugdhika with some slight change in their Vernacular names. Though different botanical species are used all over world in the name of Dugdhika, They all possesses somewhat similar pharmacognostical and Pharmacological properties, so these botanical species can be used as Pratinidhi dravyas (substitute of each other).
