Giloy Guduchi Tinospora Cordifolia Plant


Scientifically known as Tinospora Cordifolia, dates back to the earliest days of Ayurvedic medicine. In a few selected languages it can also be referred to as Gurjo, heart-leaved moonseed & guduchi.

This ages old herb is indigenous to the tropical regions of India. In ancient Aryurveda, it was an extensively used herb that is known as a supplement so powerful, that it is referred to, in Sanskrit, as "the root of immortality."
