Manjistha, also known as Indian Madder, is a perennial, prickly climbing vine that has beautiful heart shaped leaves. According to the "Doctrine of Signatures" theory, the shape of the leaves demonstrates its affinity to the cardiovascular system. It has long been deemed as an important herb in the ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda, where it is considered a lymph mover and blood purifier. This rejuvenating herb is also recognised in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it has the nickname “Xue Jian Chou”. The literal translation means that “the blood becomes so sad once it meets the madder (Manjistha) herb,” alluding to Manjistha’s powers to rid the blood of any imbalance.
