The roots are used as a flavoring principle (Murti and Seshadri 1941). The tuberous roots are aromatic due to the presence of 2-hydroxy-4methoxybenzaldehyde (2H4MB). Root extract is used as a blood purifier (Jacob 1937) and food preservative and in the preparation of nutraceutical and pharmaceutical products (Naveen and Khanum 2010). Roots have antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, and antiatherosclerotic properties (Naveen and Khanum 2010; Harish and Shivanandappa 2010). Destructive harvesting for the collection of aromatic roots, self-incompatibility, extended flowering pattern, pollinator limitation, absence of seed dormancy, and abortion of a considerable percentage of seedlings prior to establishment are the reasons for its endangered status (Giridhar et al.
