Hyperacidity and Gastric ulcers occur due to faulty lifestyle. Starches  from the rhizomes of   Curcuma angustifolia   and Maranta arundinacea Linn. (Fam. Marantaceae) are used commonly.

Both of them did not cause any toxic symptoms or mortality even up to the maximum dose level of 4400 mg/kg. Both significantly reversed the stress-induced gastric ulceration in comparison to stress-control rats.  the reversal of hypothermia found statistically significant in the rhizome starch of the M. arundinacea treated group.

CONCLUSION: M. arundinacea had better anti-stress activity in comparision to C. angustifolia.

  • Irritable bowel syndrome, IBS- Using    powdered arrowroot three times per day with meals for one month reduces stomach pain and diarrhea in people with IBS.
  • Soothing mucous membranes, such as the mouth and gum linings.

A survey of acute diarrhoea and its treatment, in 3 groups of villages in south India, revealed that use of the World Health Organization oral rehydration solution (WHO-ORS) was poor or virtually non-existent and that several liquid foods were given to children during acute diarrhoea. The effects of the most commonly used, boiled and cooled supernatants of these liquid foods [rice (Oryza sativa)-water, ragi (Eleusine coracana)-water, arrowroot (Maranta arundinacea)-water], and tender coconut-water, and of the bicarbonate- and citrate-WHO-ORS on intestinal water transport were evaluated using a rat model of secretory diarrhoea. All solutions either decreased cholera toxin-induced net water secretion (arrowroot-water) or reversed it to net absorption. Ragi-water produced maximum net water absorption, significantly greater than the WHO oral rehydration solutions. WHO-ORS utilization is poor in some developing countries, and locally used food-based solutions could be used for maintaining hydration or correcting the dehydration due to acute diarrhoea once their effectiveness has been proved by clinical trials.
