  The traditional systems of medicine plays a significant role in our health care system for the betterment of manhood. Flemingia strobilifera (Lam.) is used as herb in Ayurvedic medicine since ancient time. Flemingia strobilifera (Palas) belongs to the family Fabaceae, grown wildly in many parts of India. The plant is used highly by the countryside and ethnic people in curing various disorders. Flemingia strobilifera has an effective natural origin that has a tremendous future for research. The novelty and applicability of Flemingia strobilifera are hidden. Such things can be removed through modern research. The present article describes various traditional and medicinal utility of the plant and an attempt was made to gather information about the chemical composition of the plant or its species and/or its constituents.
