A comprehensive review of Kaempferia galanga L. (Zingiberaceae): A high sought medicinal plant in Tropical Asia

Thankappan Suvarna Preetha, Achuthan Sudarsanan Hemanthakumar and Peringatulli Narayanan Krishnan

Kaempferia galanga L. (Family Zingiberaceae) is an endangered medicinal plant with potent medicinal activities. The leaves, rhizome and root tubers of the plant possess a number of medicinal applications. The plant is economically important and is over exploited to the extent that there is always scarcity of propagating material (rhizomes) which is the consumable part too. As it is vegetatively propagated, its conservation via conventional and non-conventional means is very much crucial. The present review provides broad information of K. galanga throwing light on its current status, economic value, agronomy, ethnobotany, phytochemistry, pharmacology and conservation strategies
