Kākolyādi (काकोल्यादि) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as increasing the quantity of milk in the breast. It is a restorative, and an elixir, and is endued with the therapeutic virtue of augmenting the virile potency of a man. It was originally composed by Suśruta in his Suśrutasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna XXXVIII, a classic work on Āyurveda. The name is derived from the words Kākolī (Fritillaria cirrhosa) and ādi, translating to “first” or “commencement”. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Kākolī, Kṣīrakākolī, Mudgaparṇī, Medā, Mahāmedā, Chinnaruhā, Padmaka, Ṛddhī and Vṛddhī. The collection of herbs named Kākolyādi is but one of the thirty-seven gaṇas (‘sections’) of such groups.Source: archive.org: Sushruta samhita, Volume I
