Āsthāpanopaga (आस्थापनोपग) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as “enemata”, and originally composed by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna IV. The name is derived from the words āsthāpana, referring to “enema”, and upaga, translating to “belonging to”. It is a technical term used throughout Āyurveda. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Trivrit (Convolvulus turpethum), Pippalī (Piper longum), Mustard, Vaca (Acorus calamus), Madanaphala (Randia dumetorum). The collection of herbs named Āsthāpanopaga is one of the fifty Mahākaṣāya.
