1. Investigation of the biological activity of rhizomes indicate that they possess anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. 2. The anti-inflammatory activity was localised mainly in the hexane fraction from which one of the pure active constituents, hedychenone has been isolated. The analgesic activity was more prominent in the benzene fraction. 3. Some other minor active constituents are also present which may contribute to the total activity of the rhizomes.
