Abstract: From time immemorial the people of Manipur use Yu for medicine, relaxant and offerings. It is a distilled product of the fermented local rice. The technology of the preparation of Yu is a traditional one and the product is a source of income generation to the poorer sections of people. The technology is amenable for upgradation in a scientific way. Yu is a strong solvent for many important active constituents of medicinal plants, whose actions play a potent role in the traditional medicine. The paper deals with the uses of 12 plant species belonging to 12 families, their mode of action and applications collected from traditional healers.
