Elaeocarpus sphaericus: A Tree with Curative Powers: an Overview

Manu Pant, Ankita Lal, Prabha Bisht and Anju Rani

Abstract:
Elaeocarpus sphaericus, commonly known as Rudraksha, is an evergreen tree occupying several regions of central and north- east India. The tree is known for its varied medicinal and therapeutic properties. The dried fruit, known as the Bead, possesses electrical and electromagnetic properties accounting for their innumerable healing powers. The leaves, fruits and seeds also serve several medicinal and therapeutic purposes. While delayed fruiting and poor seed viability resist mass propagation via seeds, other vegetative propagation methods are also not very successful. This study briefly reviews the botany, pharmacology, biochemistry and concerns in propagation and conservation of this species. This is an attempt to compile and document information on different aspects of E. sphaericus and highlight the need for research and development to promote this plant.

can it be feasible to make biogas plant from rudraksha seed?
As it has good electromagnetic properties.so can we make batteries using rudraksha?
