In Hinduism

Ayurveda (science of life)

Parvaṇī (पर्वणी) is a Sanskrit word referring to various plant species from the Polygonum (knotweed) genus, in the Polygonaceae family. Certain plant parts of Parvaṇī are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work. The plant is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic value of the plant.
