  • Morning Glory (Convolvulus Pluricaulis)

Convolvulus pluricaulis is an herb found in India and Burma that is used in Ayurveda. The Ayurveda preparation shankapushpi is, according to most sources, identical with Convolvulus prostratus, but some say shankapushpi is instead Clitoria ternatea.

Convolvulus pluricaulis is used traditionally to treat nervous debility, insomnia, fatigue, low energy level. The whole herb is used medicinally in the form of decoction with cumin and milk in fever, nervous debility, and loss of memory. Convolvulus pluricaulis is used as a brain tonic.
