Ayurveda (science of life)
Utpalādi (उत्पलादि) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as alleviating thirst and proving curative in cases of vomiting, Hṛdroga (angina pectoris), in syncope, in haemoptysis, and in cases of poisining too. It was originally composed by Suśruta in his Suśrutasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna XXXVIII, a classic work on Āyurveda. The name is derived from the words Utpala (Nymphaea alba) and ādi, translating to “first” or “commencement”. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Utpala, Raktotpala, Saugandhika, Kuvalaya and Puṇḍarīka. The collection of herbs named Utpalādi is but one of the thirty-seven gaṇas (‘sections’) of such groups.
According to the Āyurvedasaukhya (16th century, Ṭoḍarānanda), the stalk, flower and fruit of Kumuda and Utpala are cooling, sweet and astringent. They aggravate kapha and vāyu.(Source): Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
