Inula racemosa - Glossary

Inula racemosa

A medicinal plant indigenous to the Himalayas.  “Puskaramula” is used in Ayurvedic medicine, both internally (for asthma and pleuresy) and topically (to treat skin diseases and promote wound healing).  Experimental evidence suggests Inula extracts have anti-diabetic activity and can improve insulin sensitivity, but human studies are lacking.
