Tamarind is a very well known herb and plant used by the Egyptians from a long time ago. It has for many centuries been used in many things, such as culinary, medicinal, ornamental uses and as an economic dye. Its botanical name is Tamarindus indica while its common name is Tamarind, Tamarindo, Tamarin or simply Indian date as a translation from the Arabic name Tamr hindi


Tamarind is cathartic, astringent, febrifuge, antiseptic, refrigerant. In India Tamarind is popular as a gentle laxative. The pulp, which comes from the pods of the tamarind tree, is a gentle laxative that improves general sluggishness of the bowels. The folk receipe is to take one to two tablespoons of the pulp in the evening. There are no known constituents in Tamarinds to account for their laxative properties; they are refrigerant from the acids they contain, an infusion of the Tamarind pulp making a useful drink in febrile conditions, and the pulp a good diet in convalescence to maintain a slightly laxative action of the bowels; also used in India as an astringent in bowel complaints
