Cissus quadrangularis L. is a succulent plant of family Vitaceae usually found in tropical and subtropical xeric wood. It is a beefy desert plant like liana generally utilized as typical nourishment in India. It finds application in medicine. Experts have made efforts to test the plant's suitability using rational analysis. Some of the pharmacological use of the plant are linked to cell reinforcement, free radical search, hostile to microbials, bone regeneration, ulceration, pain relief, mitigation and diuretics.
