Buchanania lanzan Spreng plant is well known for its medicinal and therapeutic values in Indian folk medicine. However, to be clinically useful, more scientific data are needed. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated the effects of root of Buchanania lanzan. Tribal people of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh are using Buchanania lanzan Spreng. Mainly for wound healing, anti-diarrhoeal, analgesic and antiulcer activity apart from in other conditions, but no scientific study has been carried out regarding its pharmacological activities. Traditional indigenous knowledge reveals the immense value of almost all parts of the plant i.e. roots, leaves, fruits, seeds and gum for various medicinal uses. Buchanania lanzan, being a vulnerable medicinal plant, is included in the Red Data Book published by International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). This species has high socioeconomic value providing livelihood to tribal population of the area and has high potential as commercial horticulture species. The present review discusses the need and emphasizes the importance of pharmacognostic study of Buchanania lanzan Spreng.
