Abstract
Calumba root is the trade name given to the dried root of lateorhiza Columba, a plant belonging botanically to the moonseed order, Menispermaceae. It is often referred to as Colombo root, because it was formerly thought to be shipped to Europe from Ceylon. It contains, with other alkaloids, a bitter and tonic principle called Columbin.1 The native name for the plant is kauma or kaomwa (Sw.).
