Kali Musli is an herbaceous tuberous perennial with a short or elongate root stock bearing several fleshy lateral roots which is tonic, and used to improve Menís health.

1The rhizomes of Curculigo orchioides have been traditionally used as aphrodisiac. In the study ethanolic extract of rhizomes was evaluated for its effect on sexual behavior in rats. Administration of 100 mg/kg of extract change significantly the sexual behavior as assessed by determining parameters such as penile erection, mating performance, mount frequency and mount latency. Moreover a pronounced anabolic and spermatogenic effect was evidenced by weight gains of reproductive organs. The treatment also markedly affected sexual behavior of animals as reflected in reduction of mount latency, an increase in mount frequency and enhanced attractability towards female. Penile erection index was also incremented in treated group.

Kali musli nourishes Shukra Dhatu (reproductive tissue) and it is described as Rasayana and Shukra- vardhak herb. 2Various studies have established immunostimulant and antioxidant action of black musali.
