Mahameda or meda is an important medicinal herb in Ayurveda. It is a perennial plant found in the temperate regions of Himalayas. The herb grows up to a height of 1.5 meters. It bears roots, simple lance shaped leaves and clusters of white flowers arising from leaf axis followed by red berries.

Part used: Roots

Chemical composition: Main component is alkaloid toxic.

Medical benefits: The roots are an important ingredient of Chyawanprasha and Dashmoolarishta. It is a vitalising herb and is known for its anti-ageing and nutritive qualities. A powder made from the root taken with milk increases immunity, prevents ageing, reduces fever, cough, burning sensation, swelling of the nerves, and inflammation of joints in rheumatoid arthritis. It is a cardio tonic and helpful in treating general weakness and loss of appetite caused by any prolonged illness. Taking 1-2 grams of the powder regularly is beneficial for treating sexual disorders.
