Flame of the forest (butea monosperma) is a quick growing tree that bears bright red flowers. It is also known as ‘bastard teak’, Butea gum tree, etc and is usable as an Ayurvedic medicine. The Sanskrit name is Palasa.

The bark of butea tree secretes red resin, known as butea gum, which is used in the Ayurvedic Treatments (http://www.ayuryogashram.com/) of diarrhea, dysentery etc. The tree is also usable as a timber.

Cheru narakam (Citrus Limon) is the common citrus lemon which is commonly used in lemonades and for pickling. The lemon tree produces small fleshy fruits, which gives a sour-tasting juice. Citric acid is the component that gives the sour taste.

This perennial tree grows 10-20 ft high. Stem and branches bear thorns and dark green aromatic leaves. It has carminative properties and can be regarded as an Ayurvedic herb too. It acts against such diseases like scurvy. Citrus Limon belongs to the family Rutaceae.

The climbing palas (Butea superba) is a fast growing wild tree that produces bright red flowers. Butea superba is believed to have aphrodisiac properties and sexual enhancing properties beneficial for both men and women. The extracts from tuber are taken for such sexual enhancer products.

Craig is your garden variety spammer.

We get more than 50 requests a day from new members applying to join the iTulip Forums. Each request has to be carefully checked and maybe a dozen get through the process. Forum users experience this as no spam, but occasionally one gets through. If just two or three get through and we take our eye off them for a day or two, the entire forum will collapse in a heap of spam messages. We are thinking of making iTulip 100% subscription-based for this among other reasons.
