Abstract

We have undertaken the studies to investigate the presence of various activities of the leaf extract of Ashwagandha (Lash), a commonly used shrub in Indian traditional medicine, Ayurveda. In the present study, we studied the effect of Lash against MNNG-induced genotoxicity in onion root tip cells. We report that Lash offered substantial protection against the mutagenic effects of MNNG.
