Ipomoea muricata synonyms I. turbinate, Calonyction muricata belongs to the family of the Convolvulaceae. It is a creeper and widely grows in all places. The plant is commonly known as morning glory. Flowers are purple or white up to 8 cm diameter. Fruits are pendulum shape capsules. Seeds are commonly known as “Kaladana” in trade and are being used as purgative in India and Pakistan1

Potential Uses

  • Lysergol has been used as hypotensive, psychotropic analgesic and uterus and intestine stimulating drug2
  • Recently invented the novel bio enhancing potential of lysergol, which acts as bioavailability facilitator for antibiotics and helps in transferring the antibiotics across the membrane for better efficacy on the target site3
  • Starting material for the synthesis of modern anti Parkinson drug “Cabergoline”4
  • As an main intermediate in the manufacture of ergoloid medicines (e.g., Nicergoline)
    Nicergoline: It is an ergoloid mesylate derivative used to enhance mental clarity, perception and concentration. Nicergoline, currently being used in the battle to treat senile dementia, has been found to improve mental agility through enhancing perception and vigilance, which improves oxygen stability and increases mental ability. Nicergoline has alpha-adrenolytic action which activates the brain's metabolism and improves arterial flow, lowers vascular resistance, improves the use of glucose and oxygen and it increases nerve growth in the aged brain.
