Abstract: Dried roots of Chlorophytum borivilianum Santapau & Fernandes (Family-Liliaceae), popularly known as safed musli in trade in India, is considered as wonder drug in Indian systems of medicine (Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha) due to its aphrodisiac and sex tonic properties. Because of great therapeutic importance, safed musli roots are the major constituents of more than 100 Ayurvedic formulations (Oudhia, 2000).
