Mycorrhiza! A potential natural booster to the phytoconstituent (β-asarone) of Acorus calamus

Dr. Vinit Vaidya, Vedaant Bhandary, Faisal Qureshi and Hetvi Darbar

Acorus calamus commonly called Vekhand or Sweet flag is an aromatic plant belonging to family Acoraceae. It has many useful phytoconstituents used for various ailments like fever, constipation, etc. One of them is β-asarone which is a volatile oil present in upmost amount in the rhizome of Acorus which has many pharmacological effects like neuroprotective, analgesic, anti-depression, anti-cancer etc. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) have shown evidence that it can enhance the phytoconstituents quantitively without having side effects on the plants. Our article tries to suggest whether mycorrhiza can play a vital role on the phytoconstituent (β-asarone) of Acorus calamus.
