Gokshura, also Gokshur or Gokharu or puncture vine, Zygophyllaceae family
As early as 200 AD, Vatsyayana Kamasutra of Mallanaga wrote texts in which Gokshura was mentioned, as well as in the old classical Ayurvedic texts and Chinese medicine such as flavonoids, flavonol glycosides, steroidal sapnins and alkaloids.
Gokshur (Sanskrit) is also commonly known as puncture vine, land (or small) katrops (English)
There was hardly anyone who didn't know the book, at least by name. Gokshura also became known in Europe, even though the small plant only grows in tropical and subtropical regions.
However, in Hindu mythology one looks in vain for Gokshura, which is very surprising. Only in relation to Dashahara (celebration in India) Gokshura is used in parts of India as an offering to the gods.
According to the description in the old classical Ayurvedic texts, Gokshura is sweet in taste and cooling. It calms Vata and Pitta. The ground herbal powder is traditionally preferred to be taken with milk or water or used as a spice.
