Abstract

Background: Medicinal plant controversy either in identification or accompanied usage of nomenclature disturbs the quality of formulation and practices. Common controversies (Sandigdhata) cause misinterpretations for the identification of plants as the description is present in Sanskrit. Fifteen herbs of Surasadi gana of Sushruta are either in a state of controversy or have doubtful identity. Materials and methods: To resolve the controversy, the PRISMA model of data collection is undertaken. Nomenclature and morphological characters of controversial Surasadi gana herbs were collected from different texts. Observation and results: All fifteen herbs of controversy are determined to possible extent based on the methodology used in the study. Conclusion: The controversies of Surasadi gana herbs are clarified through synonyms and morphological characters to its botanical identity. In addition, necessary revalidations of these herbs with their therapeutic values need to be studied further.
