The Medicinal plant Terminalia bellerica also known as Baheda is native to India and grows throughout the country especially in lower hill areas. The plant grows up to 60-80 feet height. The trunk is straight and dark brown in colour. The leaves are broad, oval and 4-8 inches long. Leaves are crowded towards the end of the branch and tips are pointed. The flowers grow in both upper and lower part. The upper flowers are male and lower flowers are bisexual. When the fruit dries, it looks like a pentagon and is fibrous. In Sanskrit, it is called as ‘Vibheeta,’ which actually means the one which takes away the fear of disease.
