Himalayan trillium

Himalayan trillium

Trillium govanianum- Himalayan herb is often called Nagchatri in local areas. It is found in temperate and sub-alpine zones of the Himalayas at an altitude from 2,400-4,000 metres above sea level.

  • In India, it is found in four states only - Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Sikkim, and Uttarakhand.
  • International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has placed Himalayan trillium in “Endangered” category. Its population is expected to decline by at least 50% between 2010 and 2079.

Causes for decline:

  1. Overexploitation.
  2. Longer life cycle i.e. slow to reach reproductive maturity.
  3. Poor capacity for seed dispersal.
  4. Due to its high medicinal quality, it is vulnerable to trading.

It can cure diseases like dysentery, wounds, skin boils, inflammation, sepsis, as well as menstrual and sexual disorders. It can be also used as an anti-cancer and anti-aging agent.
